Vista to hit shelves Jan. 30
It's now official: Windows Vista has finally gone gold and will be available in stores on January 30th.
Windows Vista's code was released midmorning Wednesday to manufacturing - a step that allows the company to begin making the copies that will be distributed with PCs and sold at stores, said Jim Allchin, co-president of the Microsoft division that includes Windows, in a conference.
For those of you who want to get a new computer for this Christmas, don't forget to ask your reseller for a free upgrade coupon. You wouldn't want to spend extra bucks in a few months to purchase Vista when there's a way to get it for free right?
