Let me just say, first, that let's *never* plan a release a week before Christmas again, Mmmkay?
Uhhmm, wasn't it sort of obvious that the boxes weren't gong to make it under the tree?? ;)
For future releases, if we can just rule out anything between the week before Thanksgiving and, say, January 10th or so, that'd be spiffy.
Is that the USA Thanksgiving? The Canadian one seems to be about 6 weeks earlier, and the world is bigger than just those two. If you mean after November, totally agree. There was an early December release once which was cutting it a bit fine but did make it in time.
There is the issue with needing time to install it too. I need the holidays (finishing today) for upgrading all my systems, and I doubt there are any 11.1 boxes in this country yet, so basically those boxes missed their chance. December releases don't work well.
