Windows "On Wednesday morning, I met with Microsoft co-president Jim Allchin, the man most directly responsible for Windows Vista and Longhorn Server, the company's upcoming client and server operating system releases. Allchin is a soft-spoken, intelligent man with decades of industry experience, the last 15 years of which were spent at Microsoft. I've run into Mr. Allchin at various events throughout the years, but the last time I sat down with him for a one-on-one meeting was in August 2001, when we discussed the then-upcoming release of Windows XP. With Windows Vista on track for a late 2006 release, Allchin hit the road to meet with members of the technical press."

Otherwise, it's XP all over again ...

One might even say it's w95/w98/NT/2k/xp all over again.

Time will tell if they have finally learned the lesson of history. W2k3 looks pretty good so far in terms of security and stability. Hopefully that will prove be an accurate indicator of what's coming in Vista.
