Correction: Vista/Longhorn was due to be released in 2003. It was then
delayed until 2005, 2006 and at the moment it's hoped to be 'ready' (*teeth
shaking*) in February 2007, which makes it 4 years late.

Will Windows Vista's Delay Push Back 'Fiji'?

Ironically, they plan to go with the name Vienna (they used to abide by the
horrible name "Longhorn" and now there's "Fiji"), but Vienna would be among
the first places to abolish Windows.
