Unity 2.5?

I just read about this at the site and was wondering if anyone else here had other news about it?
It says 2.5 will be compatible with Windows computer so should I use the time I have from now till the release of 2.5 to learn coding or should I forget 2.5 and just get Unity 2.0?
I already have a windows computer so it could save me alittle bit of money, or is the wait too long(if anyone knows the exact release date)

I didn't have time to read the whole thing so I apologize if any of the questions I asked were answered in there.

Heres the link:

You're planning to make iPhone games with unity?

Unity iPhone is a separate product, that most likely will never work on windows. Otherwise, up to you what to do. Just wanted to let you know.

I believe they are working or planning a windows version but to make iphone games you still need a mac and the SDK.

Unity 2.5 will be a free update to 2.x users. For iPhone development you still need the separate Unity iPhone version, as Magnus said.

this is pretty cool for a $0.99 app. What they should do is make a haunted warehouse. A lot of people would buy that!
