Vista on track says microsoft

Microsoft has confirmed that it is on course to deliver its new Vista operating system to volume license business customers in November and worldwide general availability in January 2007 after overcoming two major bureaucratic hurdles during the past month.

The vendor had been in talks with European and Korean competition authorities, but said Windows Vista would be launched on schedule in both regions following “constructive dialogue” with relevant parties.

Since those discussions, Microsoft has agreed to make a number of changes to Windows Vista based on guidance from the European Commission.

Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer, said the vendor has been submitting information to competition authorities around the world for the past two years: “We are excited to bring the security enhancements and innovative new features of Windows Vista to our customers and partners around the world, and we are committed to adhering to local law in every region of the world,” he said.
