Microsoft may be on track to deliver its highly anticipated next-generation operating system, one expert contends.
Microsoft's Windows Vista has faced a number of delays in the past, pushing the release date back to January of 2007 for the consumer market. Latest testing with pre-release versions of the new software indicate the further delay may not be necessary.
The Vista development organization has made rapid progress delivering improvements to Vistaâ€™s performance, reliability, and compatibility, Rick Sherlund of Goldman Sachs told clients on Wednesday.
We believe a second Release Candidate (RC2) of Vista may be ready to ship later this week or next, implying that the product may be on time for November Release-To-Manufacturing (RTM) and late January retail launch.
