a Microsoft shareholder - shares constantly fluctuate, and Microsoft's are no different to many others in that respect.
Vista will launch when Microsoft is ready, and in the meantime we all have a perfectly good operating system with which to work. I don't intend to lose a wink of sleep over the share price or the launch date.
Oh i can't wait for Vista to launch, all those hungry for it, go on please buy it. As for me i will wait may be a year for all the bugs to be sorted out & the launch of service pack 2 or 3 will do that.
The point a improvement on what we've already got.
I've been using the beta version on one of my computers and I must admit I do like it, yes I've had a couple of odd gliches but up-dates for equipment are coming through pretty quick now and my computer is pretty well settled.
I found going from XP to Vista a lot more easy than going from win98 to XP.
The good news for me is that the longer that it takes M$ to release it to open market the longer I can use it before coughing up the money up for it... Because I know that when the time comes all my conputers will be changed over to vista...
