I'll take that bet! It will be out Feburary 27, 2008. They are
simultaneously launching Server 2008, SQL 2008, and Visual Studio 2008 on
that date.

Ok, let's change what Jay said. It will be out Q1 2008 but my bets are
that it won't be usable until Q4 2011.

I've been playing with RC1 for a while now, it seems to be in pretty good
shape so far.

Yeah and you've also said that Vista is great and that you can't
understand why anyone bashes it.

True. From my experience, Vista works pretty well. It's not perfect, but I
don't think it's the abortion that it's made out to be either. In over a
year of running it on 3 different PCs, I have yet to have it crash or lock
up on me. It runs everything I've thrown at it.

I even paid for Vista when I built a new PC earlier this year - I must be
sick! 🙂

And so far from my experience, you are the only person to say this.

I don't think you'll get any argument on that from anyone here.

I know 1 person that has Vista alive & well on their new (well, 4 month old)
PC. Here's why it runs well:
-only uses Firefox as a web browser
-only uses Thunderbird as email client (he gave up on Windows Mail)
-wired network connection (no Vista-specific wireless headaches!)
-3GB RAM

This past July, I asked a fellow employee to try Vista. Her only non MS
Office needs were iPaq sync'ing and iCatcher software. iCatcher worked
A-OK. Since she wasn't using any of the corporate apps that demand XP, she
wasn't held bound by a dictated version of the OS. However, the mid-year
update to Vista's Active Sync (or whatever it's called now) looked like it
actually worked initially, until it flat-out refused to sync email &
contacts correctly only a couple days later. Since this was a show-stopper
for the end-user, Vista was wiped and XP was reinstalled (via ZenImaging, of
course!). Ironically, she end-user dictated the version of the OS, the one
that actually worked properly!

One of my relatives got some nastyware on their new HP PC that was less than
2 weeks old, the UAC was on, Windows Defender was updated (they should never
have named this product the same as the stellar video game. They should have
named it after a weak video game like "E.T." or "Freeway") and the a-v
software was only slightly out of date (probably due to the nastyware).
After a few hours of my time I was able to make the Vista installation as
good as new again. If "good as new" means anything in the realm of Vista.

All that being said, I kept the factory-install on my inspiron 1720. I was
ready to wipe it as Explorer would lock, wireless wouldn't work after
suspend, etc., but the late fall updates made it usable. Besides, I
installed a second hard drive and have placed suse 10.3 on there! woohoo!
Dual boot is now fun (I'm a geek to call this 'fun' LOL) . Now, if can only
get the wireless to work on suse....

I've got two co-workers using it at home who think that it has
potential. I'm being stubborn and sticking with XP on both my deskop &
laptop.

We're hamstrung at work on testing it, as our main systems vendor does
not yet support the terminal client on it.

You mean the version that was supposed to be Windows Server 2005, Windows Server 2006, Windows Server 2007 and now Windows Server 2008?
