Last Minute Changes to Windows Vista
Paul Thurrott's Site
As I write this, Microsoft is working feverishly to complete Windows Vista by its self-imposed October 25 deadline. The company says it's going to make it: Yesterday, on October 13, Microsoft announced that it sees no reason why it cannot meet its previously-publicized deadlines and deliver Windows Vista to its volume-license business customers in November and more broadly to consumers in January. But the big news, really, is that Microsoft is making some pretty serious changes to Windows Vista in a bid to meet its antitrust requirements in the European Union (EU) and South Korea and, to a lesser degree, to answer recent criticisms about Vista security features. I'd like to discuss these changes--and the ramifications they'll have on everyday users.
