Ahhhh... he said that several times already. The first time was around
November if I recall correctly. It's a subtle implication, but not an
explicit and clear statement that Vista is *the* dead end.

A few days ago, I gave live.com a shot. It is a 'Live software' search
service, which Microsoft said was "twice as good as Google". I got a real
kick out of this thing. It was so bad (for a whole variety of reasons which
would set the topic adrift) that I would encourage any Linux user to take it
for a spin. I discussed this in depth in the Webmaster newsgroup and the
search engines newsgroup. Every professional in the field concurs with this

Best wishes,
