Vista delayed by 18,000 years
Microsoft's mythical operating system looks set to remain a thing of legend. The oft-delayed Windows Vista is facing an epic setback, having been pushed back 18,000 years.
According to Manchester-based IT supplier Aria.co.uk, don't expect to run Redmond's new beast on your PC until 30 January, 20007.
The site says:
Don't hold out! Purchase Windows XP Professional edition after now and recieve a FREE* upgrade voucher for Microsoft's latest and long awaited Windows Vista Business Edition (release date January 30 20007).
Long awaited it certainly will be.
But, obviously, the Vista voucher is to become a thing of family legend, passed lovingly down from generation to generation until the lucky descendent can substitute their inheritance for the shiny new system.
That, or its Microsoft's latest attempt at monopolising the future.
Go figure. ®
