I read the article, and with some reservation in the area of 'anyone trying to run a business knows what it is like' have to commend the author for placing a neutral assessment on what has to otherwise be a difficult balance.

We have to recognize that the consumer base has, and will likely continue to, demand software of this quality. What I see when I see a Vista demo is a reduced-depth graphics used as a showcase for accomplished mathematics ( interpolation, fancy style ), haltingly interrupted by an attention-destroying frame-grabber the sole intent of which is to make everyone in fact be crazy so that everyone will need more of the stuff which is making them crazy.

Proven marketing, Redmond did not fail their history. Can somebody explain to me what they mean by upgrade ? You know it will run for a few months and then you will have to have another fix. ( I mean upgrade )
