Microsoft denies Vista code being scrapped

Microsoft denies Vista code being scrapped
A report says Microsoft is rewriting more than half of its upcoming operating system, but Redmond says it isn't so.

SAN FRANCISCO (Business 2.0 Magazine) - Smarthouse, an Australian trade publication, is reporting that more than half of Windows Vista will have to be rewritten. The problems are so severe, Smarthouse claims, that the newly reorganized Windows group is pulling in programmers from Microsoft's Xbox game-console division. However, blogger Alec Saunders doubts that the problems could be that bad -- if so, he writes, Microsoft (Research) would be pushing Vista back to 2009, not 2007. Microsoft's own blogger Robert Scoble checked into the story and got a denial from an executive at Microsoft's PR firm, who says he's not aware of any Xbox programmers working on Windows. Microsoft is now targeting next year's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas as the launch event for the consumer version of Windows Vista. One reason for the delay, and for the possible involvement of Xbox programmers: Microsoft now plans to include functions from the Media Center edition of Windows, which can record TV shows and play photos, music, and videos on a TV, into its mainstream operating system.
