Microsoft plans to showcase Windows Vista and Office Vista during the 2007 International CES show at Las Vegas. The show is scheduled between January 8-11, 2007 and Microsoft is working hard to meet that deadline.
Microsoft has already pulled programmers from the Xbox team to help resolve many problems. Also, the next version of Viiv could be delayed to line up with the launch of the consumer version of Vista at the 2007 CES Show in Las Vegas.
Meanwhile, Microsoft has identified two main reasons for the delay in Windows Vista. One, there are issues with the Windows division at Redmond and Microsoft has already announced a massive restructuring exercise.
The second big reason is the Windows Vista code - up to 60% of the code in the consumer version of Microsoft Vista needs to be rewritten.
