Gartner (and Barney) Wrong About Vista, Redmond Right
I love to laugh at people who are wrong, even when it's me. In this case, I
was wrong by agreeing with Gartner, which was horribly wrong. The wildly famous
research company predicted
that Vista would be late
and not ship until spring 2007 or so.
After seeing so many delays, I figured this was as easy as guessing that Britney
would ditch K-Fed the very week his CD and tour bombed. Gartner was wrong. Vista
, or in Redmond parlance, has been "released to manufacturing."
Instead of just being finished, it's RTM. Can we make the simple any more complicated?
If you are a major corporate customer, the real deal will be downloadable any
