Microsoft learned some hard lessons with Windows Vista that it already is applying to Windows 7.
Vista mistakes Microsoft won't repeat with Windows 7. First and foremost: Keep Windows architectural changes to a minimum. And secondly, be more predictable (and believable) when it comes to delivery targets.
That's according to Mike Nash, Corporate Vice President of Windows Product Management, who is chatting this week with press and bloggers about the state of Vista, just about a year after the company released the product to manufacturing.
We hope Microsoft doesn't crawl into a hole and be protective about its ideas and targets for Windows 7 because after all, many of the ideas for Longhorn (now Windows Vista) were so cool and innovative that we applauded Microsoft back in the day, for being so open about their intentions and ideas.
