A REPORT SAID that the consumer version of Windows Vista is likely to slip further back than January 2007, a move that will anger hardware and chip partners.

According to Computer World Canada, Steve Ballmer, the CEO of Microsoft, said it would now be "early" in 2007.

The announcement, made in Tokyo, coincides with Microsoft's WinHEC bash - and the same report said Bill Gates was spending a lot of money to use multicore processors. µ
