Robert McLaws: Windows Edition

Blogging about Windows since before Vista became a bad word

Welcome to Hell, can I get you a sweater?

I think Hell just froze over. And no, I'm not referring to the Vista launch in New York. Nor am I referring to the 30+ degree temperature drop in Phoenix the last few days. I'm referring to BetaNews Ed's article covering today's Vista Launch in New York.

Analysts such as JupiterResearch's Michael Gartenberg say there is no reason for businesses to wait to deploy. In the past, he has recommended waiting for the first service pack, however he has changed his tune for Vista.

"I don’t think that’s warranted this time around. I’ve been using every version of this OS, from early Longhorn builds all the way to RTM and so far, it’s been secure, rock solid and works well once you get used to the new UI," he said.

Hmmm. That's not the typical Jupiter party line at all. Could that be the reason that Joe Wilcox left, because his opinion was at odds with the official line Jupiter was planning on taking, so he didn't want to sacrifice his principles? I haven't had a chance to talk to Joe about it yet, so I don't know.

What I do know is that Jupiter's abrupt about-face means that Hitler will be layering their garments for the near future.
