This is, what, the 5th verse, same as the first.
The adventurous among us are out there with blood streaming from open wounds, talking about how great Vista is/is going to be.
The conservative ones - that'd be the IT managers with limited time and budgets - with whom I do business, well they just laugh when I ask them about Vista plans.
They aren't even going to look at it for a year. It was the same with XP. It's a smart choice. They'll get there in their own good time, not on Microsoft's schedule.
There's no killer app out that demands that most businesses use Vista. XP's sttled down, and we're still in the middle of its life cycle.
Only an adventurer or fool would "fix" something that ain't broke. Which is why Microsoft has to spend time and money nudging us into early adoption.
It seems obvious from the brouhaha about DRM that a lot of Vista under the hood is about providing Microsoft a means of delivering content the way the content providers want, rather than the way we want.
Since DRM and content management add NO value to my clients' businesses, they DON'T CARE. Vista is just plain irrelevant.
Asking them to line up to get shot in the forehead is not a career move for an IT consultant
