For the life of me, I cannot understand why most industry analysts are anti-Microsoft lately. You'd think a company like "Directions on Microsoft" would want to have a pretty good bead on where Microsoft is headed. Well, maybe they'd be better off searching for binLaden, because they, along with Gartner, don't have a clue what's going on in Redmond. Vista's a month away from RTM, whether they want to acknowledge it or not. The global marketing machine is already in full swing, and Microsoft won't let a blantantly anti-Microsoft EU stop a launch in the US.
I don't know what incentive these companies have for putting out anti-Microsoft FUD. I will tell you one thing though. I won't be buying another subscription to the DoM newsletter.
