ABDICATING software King of the World, Sir William Gates III might be a tad grumpy about the way Vista has gone.
In a fairly frank interview with Gizmodo, Gates was asked if he thought there any Microsoft product that "could have had more polish."
It is fairly clear that the interviewers thought that they would get a confession that Vole ME was crap, or that Gates' Missus should not have been able to play with Microsoft Bob.
Instead Gates replid: "Ask me after we have shipped the next version of Windows”.
The implication is fairly obvious. Bill thinks that Vista could have had more polish when it hit the shops. He can't say so now because that would undermine Vista's already flagging sales.
Gizmodo is over egging the pudding a bit when it claims it got Gates to say that 'Vista sucks''. What does it think it is, the INQUIRER?
