The implication is clear. When 2007 comes around MS will say Office
200n will be delayed until 2008.
I don't believe this of course. MS will release Vista and Office 200n
in 2007. Both will be bug ridden bloat with a new boatload of security
vulnerabilities. Both will flop from a sales point of view. We are
seeing the death knell of MS as we know it. For MS to survive Gates
and Ballmer will have to go.
