    Windows Vista will be released December 1st



    Take this one with a grain of salt, gang. -Trip

    Or November 30th. How do I know? Well, Microsoft EMEA has put up a website where you can guess the launch date for Windows Vista. After you submit a date, it plays a “hint” video. There’s actually a bunch of videos, some of which are quite funny. Anyway, here comes the interesting part: If you take a look at the page source, the videos are hosted on a Microsoft server in Switzerland. And depending on your guess, they are being loaded either from a subdirectory /early/ or another one named /late/. By simple iteration I quickly found that “early” ends Nov 30th while “late” starts Dec 1st. So either one of these will be the launch date. If this all is not a dirty little trick from the webmaster, of course…

      Excited isn't really the right word...
      As a developer though I'm always intersted in new stuff.
      We've been playing with an old beta release for a while now and it'll be nice to see the full product.
