Vista, coming to a store near you ... eventually

Subject: General Tech | May 22, 2006 - 04:12 PM |

Vista has hit another stumbling block, and this time it's called Symantec, as a report on CNET explains.  There is no guess as to how long a delay this might cause, but it almost guarantees no Vista until 2007.

"The relationship has definitely shifted from collaboration to 'coopetition' and, in some cases,

to outright competition," said Andrew Jaquith, an analyst at Yankee Group Research. (Coopetition

is a mixture of cooperation and competition.)

Symantec is asking a court to bar Microsoft from further developing, selling or distributing

software, including Windows Vista and Windows Server "Longhorn," until all of Symantec's

intellectual property is removed. Microsoft has described Vista as one of the most important

Windows releases in its history."
