I realize that you get very busy and rushed, but you owed your listeners a little better investigating regarding Vista. The Aussie claim should’ve tripped your bullshit detectors off at full volume. If you had written one line of code, the claim would’ve seemed immediately bogus because the slip was only 90 days. If 60% of any OS (including the precious OS X) needed a rewrite, the slip would be years. Instead, you said that you were inclined to believe the report.
If you want to be considered as journalists, you can’t take any blogs, Microsoft, mine, or Aussie at face value.
