Bug causes Microsoft to push Vista RTM to Nov. 8

October 26th, 2006 by Patrick S

Computer World reports that PC manufacturers which had expected to get their hands on the final version of Windows Vista today will have to wait a couple more weeks for the operating system, according to sources familiar with Microsoft Corp.’s plans.Microsoft originally targeted today for Vista’s release to manufacturing, but a last-minute bug that “took most of the Vista team by surprise” caused an unexpected delay, the Vista team discovered the bug, which “would totally crash the system, requiring a complete reinstall,” in Vista Build 5824 on Oct. 13. The team fixed the bug a week later in Vista Build 5840, he said, but the delivery of the operating system to PC makers was delayed. Therefore the team is now targeting a new date of Nov. 8 for Vista’s release to manufacturing.

Although this dosen’t change my perspective on Vista being a really great operating system-finding a bug at the last minute does put a damper on its credibility….hopefully that’s the only hiccup and Vista will be the very best Operating System out there today.

    I dont think that its a lame comment… I am simpley voicing my opinion… If a product was just about to RTM and a big bug was found does tend to say that vista is not ready, HOWEVER i didnt say htta…i merly said it would put a damper on its credibility then proceeded to say that it will still be the best OS ever…i have all confidence in the operating system… As I said…it was just a comment to sum up the article.
