Consumers won't get Vista until 2007

just in Microsoft said Tuesday that Windows Vista won't show up on new PCs until January 2007, though Microsoft will make it available to business customers in November.

Windows chief Jim Allchin said that the company will finish the code this year, but will push out the full launch to ensure that all PC makers will be ready for the launch.

"We needed just a few more weeks and that put us in a bubble... where some partners would be impacted more than others," Allchin said in a conference call with reporters and analysts.
