    August 1, 2006 because that is the first day Microsoft's Antispyware (beta 1) is expired.

    im interested to find out when it will come out 2! About a year ago they said it would be ready around May 2006 - so much for that!

    Im guessing around the August month because of Electronic Punk's theory :)

    EP seems to have a thought-out guess, but then it's Microsofts Codenamed Longhorn OS were talking about - the one that encountered numerous delays :eek:

    I believe MS want to make sure systems that are bought for Xmas next year come preloaded with Vista, I think that may be cutting it a bit fine.

    That's easy, manufacturers will begin installing it on systems to ship out in early December.

    Wiki agrees with you EP. Just read the document... they agree with the 5 year idea...
