When will people learn not to trust this company. Microsoft spent miilions convincing consumers and media devices manufacturers to invest in its technology and then leaves its “customers” holding the bag. The funny things is their technology is called “Play for Sure”. Yeah, right!

In other news, concerns over Vista are so “minor” that the US News and World Report had to write about it.

Imagine the training budget for a company like with tens of thousands of employes that must be trained, hundreds of in-house custom apps that must be tested and or rebuilt ( some software consulting firm will be swimming in the dough ), and hundreds of business applications that just do NOT run ( image how costly it will be to upgrade or replace Windows based manufactuing systems ) on Vista. My employers migration plans do not even start until 2010, which is when we expect that all of the current set of PCs would have replaced by “Vista ready” machines.

And the business productivity benefit is suspect.

Oh, and just to make sure we all feel the urgent need to move to Vista, Bill Gates has already started talking about Windows 7 which he expects Microsoft to release “sometime in the next year or so”. That’s just around the time I expect most people will have “Vista ready” computers. What the ….?!

Any idea on what your employers plans are for Vista? I say “Hasta la vista, Vista!”
