Right Choice in December

Read all the comments from MS employees in the thread. They are pretty unhappy and demoralized at the moment. (At least the ones posting there.)

Vista 2007. Fire the leadership now!
(Mini-Microsoft)

It certainly sounded like Microsoft leadership committed to us, our customers, our partners, and our shareholders that Vista would be out in 2006.

Slip!

We should have asked for more details around the “or else” part of that commitment.

Meanwhile, Apple is on a roll.

    Even after virtually stripping it naked of any breakthrough features, and after spending between 5 to7 billion dollars in R&D to come up with virtually nothing, and late? Ouch!…. 6 years between upgrades? They are living on borrowed time…

    Ouch. Not like there was that much of a choice to make between the two. It was a no-brainer.

    Borrowed time, yup. But one can go a long time on borrowed time sometimes…

    I have at least three brains!
