If they're pushing for an early release late this year, that would be good. It's already October so if the release is this year, it should be out now or real soon.

I went to some of the Vista sites and got news of the 2nd half release in 2007. Could be mistaken.

Yes that is what i said!

Ha, by the time Vista comes out, I would dump XP into my pile of old obsolete software. Don't need SP3. I guess it's only for people who don't have intention to upgrade to the new OS, that the SP3 would be beneficial.

I don't think they are. They're planning Beta 2 hopefully for late this year, early next year, and a release probably mid year, definately before Christmas.

So the plan for WinFS is still being scrapped for the final release? I think that would suck though because that's the whole point of Windows Vista. I wonder if WinFS will be released in a SP or something.

The tools for the System to read WinFS Partitions will probably be in the final release of Vista. Just that it won't be able to make them. Then any other tools, extensions, will probably be in a patch rather than a Service Pack, and the tools to make the partitions will be included in a new batch of CDs without an excess baggage I would imagine, and a download from the site, or a patch too. I don't think WinFS will be too far behind Vista actually, they have some good stuff on it already.
