Redmond in serious denial

Man they are scrambling and back-pedaling and spinning themselves into a tizzy up there in Redmond over the Vista fiasco. Now the new line of rhetoric is that Service Pack 1, released in 2008, will turn things around and spark huge demand. The wow is then, I guess. See the CNET story here. I wonder how many of Microsoft’s current employees were there in the late 1980s. Not many, probably. So I guess when they walk around campus and hear that weird disembodied voice chanting, “OS/2 … OS/2 … OS/2 …” they just don’t know what it means at all.
