lol, good one.

It is not due til 2009 at the earliest, so probably 2010. If it was due in 2008 MS would be hyping the heck out of it now, or would at least have released info on it.

Right now lots of people who decided to "wait til the first service pack" are trying it out and seeing that it isn't as bad as people made it out to be.

Isn't there going to be a Windows 7? A less graphical, more simplistic Vista? I saw some videos on YouTube about that.. Not sure if it's a hoax or not.

False

There will be at least a year or two more with vista still. Which is not a bad thing as its really stating to run smoothly. Think of how long XP was out for. Vista is no Windows ME people.
