MS Vista not People Ready
Forbes Magazine has an article about Microsoft's latest "event" regarding Windows Vista, and how wonderful it's going to be. That is, how MS thinks it will be wonderful, not how Forbes thinks. In fact the writer spelled out in no uncertain terms what a waste of time the event was, and what a joke Vista is turning out to be.
"Why the hell did they drag us here? we wondered. We'd been promised big news and some earth-shattering announcements by Microsoft flacks who insisted this was something we shouldn't miss. Instead, we got a demo that was about as compelling as a root canal followed by a 15-minute press conference with Ballmer, the Microsoft chief executive who seems incapable of speaking at any level softer than a bellow."
