Maybe MS would be far better to ditch the millions of lines of bloated code, patched into legacy modules, and just start completely over, take their time and include the new file system, and deliver a really first rate product. Even though it might cut into their profits for a year or two. in the long run, MS and---too bad they don't think of this first---its customers might profit.

It just blows my mind that a $billion company, can not get their act together.

How could there ever be hope, for the rest of us? We all are surely doomed. :-,

I read that linked article 3 times, and no where did I see a remark to substantiate the 60% code rewrite. Also the article had a misspelling, which casts more doubt about it's authenticty to me. "In an effort to meet a deadline of the 2007 CES show in Las Vegas" The correction is in red. Just another case of MS bashing IMHO. :huh:

Microsoft: No Vista Code Changes
By Ed Oswald, BetaNews
March 24, 2006, 4:05 PM

Microsoft slammed an article by Australian technology publication Smart House on Friday, calling it "speculation." The retort came as a result of a story that cited sources within the company saying as much as 60 percent of Vista code needs to be rewritten.
