The Right Move
“Releasing the operating system before it’s fully baked is the right move, and Microsoft can make improvements after it ships, Otellini told staffers.”
How does this even come close to the right move? What is Microsoft losing out on by shipping an OS with Vista like bugs, ticks, annoyances and software incompatibilities?
Windows isn’t going to lose market share by not releasing 8 on time. Windows will lose market share if they release another Vista. Taking your time to get the thing right has got to be more important now than ever.
Windows 8 is a radical change for Microsoft (much as Vista was to XP) and introducing the public to a buggy, software incompatible Windows 8 is the worst thing they could possibly do.
