The Inquirer believes they have tracked down someone who knows when Vista will be released. The RTM (Release To Manufacturer) should be out mid-month, giving Dell, HP and others the chance to get Vista installed on pre-built systems. It does seem like a tight time-line to get those PCs in stores for Christmas.
