Vista in "less good product" shocker
« on: September 20, 2009, 09:23:59 am »

In a remarkable and some might say all-too-fleeting display of honesty, a senior Microsoft executive has branded Vista a "less good product".

According to reports, the shocking revelation was made by Charles Songhurst, Microsoft's general manager of corporate strategy, at an investor's conference.

"What people underestimate is the importance of good or bad products," he is reported by those who could be bothered to sit through the entire thing, as saying.

"And sometimes your products are good, sometimes the products are bad. And I think Vista was a less good product for Microsoft."

Less good? Presumably Songhurst was hinting at what analysts, investors, and more importantly, users, have known for quite some time - that Vista is a bloaty, slow, underwhelming operating system which has failed to supplant XP in most organisations.

Although Microsoft has acknowledged in the past that mistakes have been made with the OS, it has never been so outspoken in its criticism of the software.

However, before anyone believes this remark represents the turning over of a gloriously candid new leaf, think again. Songhurst went on to sing the praises of Redmond's next attempt, the "extremely good" and "brilliantly developed" Windows 7.

I suppose all you can say is "better late than never". It's a pity they didn't come to that conclusion before parting a lot of people from their money.  8)

Marketing ploy. He is Microsoft. No way he believes it's "less good". A lot of people use it. like it, and love it. I was one of those people. "We know it's less good" "Now go ut and buy a copy of our newest operating system"

I personally believe that last sentence should read "Now go ut and buy a copy of our new and marginally operating system that is based on our less good operating system but expanded and hopefully improved and if there are issues we hope you don't notice them too quickly He's not being honest. He's just throwing out a weak sales pitch."
When you wake up each morning always try to remember tomorrow is never your option, it's God's. Love like you want to. Live like you aren't afraid. And ALWAYS try to remember that even if it seems personal it's never as important as something you may have forgotten to do today.
