Bloggers ask Microsoft to delay Vista
Wow, I can’t say I saw this one coming. While most people I know are anticipating and preparing for the coming of the new Windows, former Microsoft employees and tech bloggers wrote together defending that the current versions just aren’t stable enough to meet the factories in October.
A Windows .NET developer named McLaws writes:
Vista just isn’t ready. Microsoft’s managers in charge of the system–principally Jim Allchin, who leads Windows development–need to “give your people a little more time to get it right. You’ll be lambasted for it. But it doesn’t matter what 125 people in the media will say. 700 million Windows users will thank you.”
I sincerely doubt that Microsoft will delay Vista any further due to financial and strategic reasons, however, if the final version isn’t much more stable than the latest build, I’ll probably only get Vista when they make the first Service Pack for it.
