    Yer so it seemed rather reliable to me...

    But bink.nu just said the story is now reported false and linked to here;
    http://scobleizer.wordpress.com/2006/03/24/where-the-heck-is-scoble/

    Which sounds like scoble is out head hunting

    Are you serious?  Did you read that?  That email is the internal mail announcing the re-org of the Platform & Services Division. 

    Find me where Kevin says we're going to rewrite 60% of Vista, or 60% of the MCE code, or 60% of fill-in-the-blank?

    Find me a name or anything close to back up to the 60% figure.


    Did i say i ever believed that the recode was true?
    Find me where i said that.

    I said i highly doubted it was true because there is no way 60% of vista is media center stuff.
