I think Jeff is usually pretty tight-lipped about these things.

There is no specific release date because no release date is known. It pretty much comes down to whenever the Windows version is ready. Because Jeff has a bit of experience, he knows how long (on average) a Windows port will take. However, he cannot tell an exact time because he cannot anticipate all issues that will need to be resolved during the port.

The advent of another Windows "product" makes this release especially sticky. I think he's trying to satisfy past (Win 2k), present (WinXP), and future.

But the game does look pretty slick. He's done real well by us.

Since Vista is coming out, he doesn't want to have complaints from gamers about problems with that system. Windows beta testing is mostly making sure that no errors crept in during the transfer and that it runs on all systems.

Take a look at Geneforge 4 Mac release for an idea of what it will be like when it is released.

I'm not sure if Jeff, in his blissfully Mac-filled world, even cares about Vista. His games are not known to be tailored in the most general of Windows API methods that allow for easy cross Windows version compatibility.

I've been anxiously waiting for the Geneforge 4 release as well, especially because of the praise that the community has given it. But I am willing to wait so that he can make sure that there are no game crippling bugs left.

Jeff himself says that about 50% of his sales are for PC gamers. As more and more users switch to Vista (which is a topic for another thread...) it would be very disadvantageous to not make the games runnable on that OS.

Actually, Jeff has more recently said that the majority of his sales are for Windows. I think he gave 60% as the rough percentage. And he's repeated many times that he cares deeply about his bottom line. Given that, while Jeff may not be the most technically proficient coder or the most Windows-familiar programmer out there, I'm sure he's doing his best to make his games PC-friendly.

Then the percentage has increased. My 50% statistic was over five years old, so I'm hardly surprised to see a greater percentage toward PCs these days looking at the greater market share it has.

I thought it had lost market share to Linux and Apple since 2002. Anyway, if Jeff is really trying to test it on a Vista, we're going to have to wait a while, unless he got the corporate version of it that was released about two months ago.

It should be out within 10 days.

It is tested on Vista. I got a few testers with advance copies.

Edit: Oops! I was going to say, that's good because my laptop gets upgraded to Vista on Tuesday...

My brother will be overjoyed. He's the only family member who prefers Windows.

That is correct.

OK, this is just nuts. My brother is absolutely CRAZY to be jumping around the house this late, waking up the city.

Is anyone else this excited? Besides Nioca, of course.

No, it means that you will finally have the information to join the existing debates. Some of the crazy posts will be understandable.
