Smoke or Vapour
Is this Vapourware, or the future of a once-mighty empire going up in Smoke.
How can it be that with that many highly paid brains in one building they havn't had something ready for five years?
It is customary for commentards like me to suggest that M$ never innovates. Ladies and Gentlemen, I present the evidence.
I said 3 years ago that Vista would cost them the farm, and I still believe it. Have you heard the mutterings from anyone who pays 450 quid for a laptop with W7 basic and then faces a bill for half as much again to make it do something? or people who discover 30 days in just what that "demo" version of office was really all about? Office + W7 premium can come to more than the cost of the laptop, the bastards.
This organisation has seriously lost the plot, and if they think they can derail the whole industry for the 13th time with promises of vapourware at some distant future date, then I think they will learn that the industry finally grew up. I really, really, home that they are doomed, and doomed properly.
A pox on them, the whole miserable crew of them.
