More sources point to Nov. 8 Vista RTM

Posted by Benjamin J. Romano at 9:29 AM

DigiTimes and ComputerWorld have stories out suggesting that the release to manufacturing date for Windows Vista has been delayed to the second week of November after a significant bug was discovered in mid-October.

Both stories, and an earlier report from Paul Thurrott, suggest that the bug has since been fixed, but it was enough to push the RTM past Oct. 25 -- a date indicated by an electronic reader board I saw in a building on Microsoft's campus Oct. 16.

Microsoft's Jim Allchin debunked the Oct. 25 date last week. Other than that, Microsoft has kept mum on RTM dates and repeated the November-for-business, January-for-consumers availability drum beat.

DigiTimes cites unnamed Taiwanese PC manufacturers suggesting that RTM will occur the second week of November. ComputerWorld quotes a man at a Seattle company testing its products for Vista. He said the target date is Nov. 8.
