Microsoft has (surprise!) delayed the release of Windows Vista, which will mean that some PC vendors will miss selling Vista-equipped PCs in the crucial fourth-quarter shopping season. Microsoft's Jim Allchin says the Vista delay is only a few weeks, and he doesn't expect the delay to affect overall PC sales this year. And that's true. Because no one thought Vista was actually coming out this year, and no one has (hopefully) been waiting for Vista to come out so that they can buy a new PC. Seriously. Vista? It's just an elaborate joke, right? C'mon, Jim. Tell us the truth.
