"SEATTLE (Reuters) - Microsoft Corp. (MSFT.O: Quote, Profile, Research) will most likely ship its upcoming Windows Vista operating system on time and meet its deadline for both corporate and retail consumers, a Wall Street analyst said on Wednesday."


(Rumors have it that an RC-2 is in the works, and will ship on Friday... :headset: )
"Goldman Sachs analyst Rick Sherlund sent a note to clients saying that Microsoft may be ready to send the final test version of its much-anticipated Windows upgrade later this week or next week, indicating that Vista will be available for business customers in November and retail PCs by late January."

Better allow for an upgrade though since I just installed and am very happy with things as they are currently.

I know it's weird. Previously my downloads came out corrupted. However each time I was given a new code. Until finally MS said I had my limit of codes. At that point downloads were refused and thought I was screwed. That seemed to change with RC1 :headset: Why?, I don't know :yahoo:

If I had to download Vista it would always be corrupt or it would take me about 2 months. Thats the joy of 56K dial up
