Give it up

You have to hand it to Microsoft:

"Microsoft today confirmed that Windows Vista, the next generation of the Windows client operating system, is on target to go into broad consumer beta to approximately 2 million users in the second quarter of 2006. Microsoft is on track to complete the product this year, with business availability in November 2006 and broad consumer availability in January 2007."

Anyone who's worked in a PR-related capacity anywhere has probably at one point or another crossed their fingers and told a little white lie (or possibly a big whopper), but using in one short paragraph both the phrases "on track" and "on target" to announce that Vista is in fact nothing of the sort constitutes a raising of this fine art form to a hitherto unheard of level...
