Microsoft’s marketing

Ian Hickson:

I love how Microsoft announce all their news long before they actually do whatever it is they announced. “Our next operating system will rock! In three years. Maybe four.” “Our browser is going to be amazing! It will ship next year.” “Our search engine will be better than the competition! In six months.” (That last one is especially funny to me since they keep saying it every six months, as far as I can tell.) But I’m especially amused by the latest one: “Our CEO will quit! In two years.”

Perfect 🙂

Also, basing on their current release management process, they may not make the CEO release on time and they’ll slip by year or two.
