Microsoft Corp's release of Windows Vista should begin in November with roll-out to businesses and broader release of the software to general customers by January, company officials said on Tuesday.

Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates told local software partners at a Cape Town technology conference there was an "80% chance" Vista would be ready as scheduled for broad release in January, a company spokeswoman said.

The spokeswoman, who asked not to be named, said the current plan was to begin releasing Vista to business customers in November, with the general release in January.

I've also seen recent stories of Bill Gates saying that he wouldn't be opposed to later roll out dates if necessary. I would really be more comfortable if MS didn't push this one out the door before it's ready. From the reports I've read MS doesn't want to do that either. They still have another round or two of betas coming out.

It's way too early to be guessing exact release dates I'm afraid. MS has made quite a few hopeful release date announcements in the past. Don't get too upset if they miss this one too.

Thatís perfect but this news story gives indication internally they are pushing for launch.

Don't get too upset if they miss this one too.

Never mind!

Better they delay the product than rush it out to a waiting market. They would have a problem on their hands if their "Will Work With Vista" campaign on desktops seemed to be a hoax.

Case in point: Windows ME.
