So Uncle Fester just called me. I’m not kidding. He tells me Vista is slipping again. They’re going to have to announce a new date: June 2007. So they’re looking for something else they can announce a few days before to serve as a diversion, like maybe some kind of partnership around TV-and-music technology. I suggested maybe Gates could use his philanthropy to give iMacs to kids in Third World countries. Or just license OS X, as I’ve been suggesting for months now. Ballmer groaned and hung up. Offer still stands, egghead.
Anyhoo, you read it here first: Vista, June 2007. (My bet is they miss that one too.)
