After five years and repeated delays, Microsoft Corp. finished Windows Vista on Wednesday and announced plans to release it in stores Jan. 30 -- ending an unusually arduous chapter in the life of the company's flagship product.

Microsoft's next big challenge will be getting people to upgrade to the program. But for a moment, at least, the company's relief at finishing the project was palpable.

Lets hope that Microsoft doesn't really only allow two uses of its OS before charging you again, for say, changing your motherboard. Can you say "class action"?

A little OT, but I was wondering which version of Vista comes with IIS?

According to APC magazine the web server IIS will be in: Business, Enterprise and Ultimate Edition.

I didnt realize they will have VISTA Ultimate Edition, which will cost about $750 AUD, which is about $575 usd.
