Microsoft Vista: Not ‘People Ready’

Forbes is hosting an opinion which is nothing more than a virulent view of the current state of M$ Vista.

The new version of Microsoft Windows, called Vista, has slipped again. It was originally going to ship in 2003. Then 2005. Then 2006. Now in early 2007. I’m not surprised, having seen a demo of Microsoft’s new programs at an "event" for tech buyers in New York last week

Worse yet was the grumbling afterward in the press room. 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. Ballmer took a few potshots at IBM (nyse: IBM – news – people ), claiming the computer giant doesn’t innovate anymore.

Given Microsoft’s delays I can’t believe open-source stuff still hasn’t caught on for desktop computers. It’s amazing, but people will wait months and months for products that are so complicated that no ordinary person can figure out how to use them.

On other sites, a rumour state that a big part of the Vista code has to be rewritten before shipping, let’s wait for an official position before propagating sch rumours 😉
