Good interview Robert. A little short but that obviously couldn't be helped.
Does Steve alude to a more requent Windows release schedule in the future?
Perhaps a bit more like Apples system of a major release like OSX - but then frequent major updates like Tiger, Panther etc every 18 months where new features are introduced to enhance the platform?
I didn't like the Apple system at first - I thought they were ripping off their customers by asking for $129 every 18 months. But looking at all of the improvements and new features that have been added to a 4-5 year old OS.
Unfortunately Win XP still looks like it did when it first came out. Only real improvement has been to include better security.
Perhaps this is the future for Longhorn? A major release followed by regular updates that are more than just patches and bug fixes?
