Looks like it can be postponed forever as it is explained in: http://www.windowssecrets.com/comp/070315/#story1

From the article:

The feature that I've revealing today shows that Microsoft has built into Vista a function that allows anyone to extend the operating system's activation deadline not just three times, but many times. The same one-line command that postpones Vista's activation deadline to 120 days can be used an indefinite number of times by first changing a Registry key from 0 to 1."

Nobody's gonna believe that computers are intelligent until they start coming in late and lying about it.

Working...
