Windows Vista slips to Q4 2006

A presentation from Microsoft hints Windows Vista won't be available for shipment until the last quarter of next year. Previously the software giant stated it would ship Windows Vista in the second half of 2006 but on Thursday, Will Poole, senior vice president of the client division of Microsoft, said the operating system wouldn't be available until the 2006 holiday time frame in the United States.
This presumably would mean that the OS will not be available until sometime around the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday, which is the last Thursday in November, or Christmas, which is Dec. 25.

Poole quickly corrected his faux pas, and reiterated Microsoft’s party line that Windows Vista will be ready sometime in the second half of 2006 during the remainder of his presentation to analysts.
