Re: [WIN8] Microsoft's head Windows guy leaving IMMEDIATELY

Ballmer was referncing a rapid development cycles for their offerings. To be competitive Microsoft would likely have to mirror Apple's annual OS upgrade cycle for both Windows and Windows RT.

Releasing a new OS every year instead of ever three or so years has got to put a lot of pressure on someone.

And corporate users don't like updates that frequently.

I don’t see the point you‘re trying to make with that statement. As it stands now with a quasi 3 yr OS upgrade cycle corporate users may still not upgrade each release. So what difference does it make if they don’t want to upgrade every year when they clearly don’t want to upgrade every three years either. The option of upgrading is still there so they simply have more options.

My only point in pointing out the possibility of an accelerated OS launch cycle is that it is conceivably more work for whomever holds such a position.

Anyway, Steven Sinofsky replacment has been named and she‘s not half bad looking:

Too true.
I work at a bank and we still use Windows XP.
Updates are always very far behind due to the fact that they have to be verified by the corporate's IT security department.

Especially when that new every three years OS is the same as the existing OS but with just a new dress.

Yeah but the iSheep will buy anything the minute Apple releases it. Not sure MS has the same cult following. Oh wait, all the companies still running XP... I'm sure they don't.
