Windows "Two days before the start of Professional Developers Conference 2005, I've received exclusive insider information about the product editions which Microsoft intends to create for Windows Vista." Secondly, Microsoft has made available for download a preliminary vesion of the Vista User Experience Guidelines. Lastly, Brian Proffitt thinks Vista will be free. As in beer, that is.

Makes no sense

This article makes no sense. This article makes it sound like Microsoft only wants Windows around so that people will run Office. Why not make Office for other operating systems. Office for Windows, Mac, and Linux. Is Microsoft so pathetic that they just want Windows on people's computers so that they can see their name everywhere. I doubt it. Microsoft definitely makes money off of Windows, otherwise it would scrap it. Too much work and money is spent building Windows when it could just make its Office suite available on other operating systems and make the same (more?) amount of money. I don't think so.
