The one thing I respected about M$
was their regular scheduling of product cycles which they did many moons ago to solidify their own internal development and allow corporations to budget for the future.
Now they are ending Vista support early and are pushing out other products faster than usual this corporate comfort has vanished. M$ product was never good in the early releases, not getting half-decent until SP2 or SP3. Now their users will be subject to more bugs and issues due to the accelerated release cycle.
Slow down M$. You are not Ubuntu...
