Apparently, Microsoft is still running into issues with Vista, even after deleting several features from the original Longhorn plan. They’ve announced an updated availability date, and it’s 2007! For those keeping score, Longhorn was originally planned for a 2004 release.

They delayed it until 2005 for security issues. At that point, Allchin promised WinFS would be in the release.

Four months after that announcement, MS announced the removal of WinFS from the 2006 release.

Eight months after that, there was rampant speculation that the 2006 date was optimistic. MS denied any such thing.

Just recently, EFI booting support was pulled from the planned Vista release.

Wonder when it will ship and what will be in it.
