I love Engadget. But apparently these days, they'll link to anyone. Consider this post: the blog they link to has a single post int it, puportedly with "inside information" about the next two Windows releases. The problem is, the information they link to is grossly inaccurate. For one thing, Microsoft would never put out a release that "completely breaks backwards compatibility" as a feature, and for another... WinFS as we knew it is long dead. But that's just the start... almost all of this information is completely made up.
The folks at Engadget usually know what they're talking about, but this is just irresponsible. But Engadget aren't the only ones that screwed up, their source was Slashdot, whose source was PCLaunches.com, whose source was this one-post wonder.
What a wonderful New Year's game of "telephone". If you're looking for real and accurate Windows news, there are several other great news sources you should trust. PCLaunches.com is definitely not one of them.
