Windows Vista Beta 2 Delayed Until 2006
Expect Microsoft to annouce that it will delay the release of its Windows Vista Beta 2 until January or February 2006.
A Microsoft representative told me that the company remains on track for shipping Windows Vista in the second half of 2006. “We are on schedule and committed to shipping on time and ensuring a high-quality product,” I was told. “Microsoft sets internal targets for the development team around milestones, but these are not commitments to specific dates. We do not comment on these internal milestones and we have not announced a specific timeframe for our next major Windows Vista milestone. “
It appears that they are still confident they can ship the new OS on schedule, officially releasing it next summer.
