Err, long live Vista?

Every now and then I read something amusing or thought provoking and think "hey, I'd blog that... if I had a blog". A spare evening and that's fixed now. So let's get to it.

In a (very long) idle moment I was reading the 316 page Windows Vista Product Guide and discovered that the non-business versions will be officially supported for five years. 60 months. That's it. Fair enough, though I'd expect a jar of honey to last longer.

But what amuses me is this: development for Vista, which gets unleased to the world in a few weeks, started in May 2001, meaning it will have been about 68 months in development. Hmm.

Even those who are yet to come will not be remembered by those who follow. Ecc 1:11.
