Bill de hÓra writes about the umpteen billion dollars sunk into Vista...
more backseat driving - does anyone outside MSFT understand what it takes to get the OS done at all?I don't think it is a matter of comprehending how difficult the work is. It is a matter of comprehending the value of doing that work. They are on the wrong track. There is little value in what they've done. The real losers will be those who will have no choice but to fork over big bucks to MSFT.
Far and away MSFT will recover its costs through "update-by-force" rather than "update-by-choice".
I would hate to have *that* as my customer base.
