Windows Hot on the heels of our previous story outlining the fiasco that Vista's release has been, TechRepublic's Jason Hiner predicts that Microsoft is aware of its blunder and will respond by making a release of Windows 7 ahead of schedule (primarily by overhauling Vista and calling it Windows 7, it seems) in order to encourage its enterprise clients to upgrade directly from XP to Windows 7.

But the point is no matter what they do it will be interpreted as a failure / as a short coming by the legions of Microsoft haters contrasted with how Apple apologists will make excuses / justifications for almost any failure on Apple's part.


Actually, that's not your original point-the point you made was that it amazed you how the same people calling for a scratch rewrite of Windows are the same folks who complain about Vista incompatibilities and that they couldn't have it both ways, but you in your own words admit that it can be done (and indeed it can). Whether those same people choose to be Microsoft haters is clearly their choice-but that's a different argument altogether. I'm merely pointing out that perhaps, as other people have stated, they *can* have it both ways. That's not at all an unreasonable request for a piece of software backed by multi-billion dollar company.
