Disappointing many, the long-awaited expansion to Half Life 2 is being yet again delayed. For reasons unknown, Valve has stated that the game won't be released for many more months, extending into summer of next year: Valve's Doug Lombardi told CVG that Half-Life 2: Episode Two's release has slipped from Q1 2007 back to summer 2007.

Lombardi said that the super developer is "now targeting summer 2007" for a release. This obviously affects Team Fortress 2 and Portal, which all form part of mouth-watering Episode Two package. Many were looking forward to the release, which was originally supposed to be here this year. However, given the double edged sword that is quick yet bug-ridden releases, it's often better to have a delay for quality improvements than a game pushed forward when it doesn't need to be.

I think there was some talk about it between XMS, Kemp, and Frag.

a volume license is a stupidly large amount of money, it only really becomes genuinely money saving if you have 2000 machines

I'm on a Uni one, so I can only download windows and dev kit, but I'm currently the owner of XP pro and an unused 2K3 Enterprise Edition (I decided to use XP pro instead - bad decision tbh), and I'll be getting Vista ASAP. I have Office 2007 beta too, so I'll be using that until runs out, then I'll either badger the guy who's incharge of MSDN to get it (he'll probably tell me to use Latex though :(), so then I'll probably go back to 2003 and get 2007 by less amiable means ;).
