August 1, 2006 because that is the first day Microsoft's Antispyware (beta 1) is expired.
Dam, That is how I was thinking as well. That's what I put in.

I have a feeling august is a little early but then again I haven't been following the whole Vista thing lately

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 :)

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...

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
