Microsoft Finally Begins Discussing Longhorn Features: "Though Microsoft plans to finalize Longhorn by May 2006, I've heard that the company might delay the release until late 2006 to coincide with the release of Office 12. 'We're still on track for shipping by holiday 2006, so we'll be done before then,' he said this week. For Microsoft, the holiday season starts in September, so presumably Longhorn would be widely available by August or September 2006. We'll see."
