    According to a Reuters report, Bill Gates gives us an 80% chance of seeing Vista out on time in January of 2007.

    Is it me or is that down from a 100% chance of having the consumer version out in January after they missed the original December target?

    Really, I suppose this whole thing doesn't really affect me, but it's become such a guilty pleasure to watch the target date creep back over and over, it would almost be a relief to see the thing let loose:

    Billy Zane: No, you rock. When you gonna drop Magnum on us, buddy?
    Derek Zoolander: Not yet. You gotta tame the beast before you let it out of its cage.

    Or over a year ago.

    You know I think it would be SO funny if say for example Steve announced Leopard at MWSF but right before he was like:


    "We were going to release Leopard today but we are going to delay it's release by six months to finish it up.

    Oh and we are going to drop a few features to finish in time....

    just kidding, it's done, ships today and is fully featured."

    That would be amazing.

    hahaha, while it doesn't quite convey what I said, the facial expressions alone and the square vs triangle shaped heads made me laugh.

    Thanks.
