Vista Third Parties Are the Real Story
A new operating system isn't much without new apps, and the news on Vista is
good and bad. The good news is that ISVs
are arriving in droves to announce Vista plans
The bad news: These apps in general ain't showing up anytime soon. First up
are utilities like communication software from Attachmate (not sure how terminal
emulation software will exploit the Vista interface!) set to ship this spring,
and security, backup and disk imaging software from Symantec due this month.
But the killer software meant to exploit the new UI will, like Masson,
not ship before it's time.
