Well, it's getting close… Windows Vista I mean. Microsoft has announced that it's newest operating System, Windows Vista, will be broadly available as a stand-alone product or preinstalled on new PCs on January 30, 2007. And, Windows Vista will be made available to Volume License customers later in the month of November 2006.
