Dan I worked in upper management in a franchise environment and the prevailing attitude was wait until the third roll out before implementing anything Corporate suggested.
Hence I don't buy the latest version of anything.
Now 8 is 3 removed from XP which was a winner and I might point out the third since a winner.
I skipped the most of the losers and I would like to continue the trend. Oh well there was FrontPage but everyone has to screw up now and then.
