Allchin: Vista won't RTM Oct. 25

Posted by Benjamin J. Romano at 6:27 PM

Jim Allchin, co-president of the Microsoft division building Windows Vista, said the company will not be released to manufacturing on Oct. 25. I reported seeing an electronic reader board inside Microsoft's Building 9 on Monday that said "9 Days Until Vista RTM!!!" Microsoft would not comment for that story, other than to reiterate its launch schedule of November business availability, January consumer availability.

Allchin contradicted the information on the reader board in an interview with Mary Jo Foley.

"We won't RTM (release to manufacturing) in a week," Allchin told Foley on October 18. "We are in pretty good shape. And there are still months before (the January 2007) launch."

He gave no RTM date.
