Neil Holloway, Microsoft's president of EMEA, said the main reason for the delay of Windows Vista is security.
The firm got sidetracked because of security with the launch of Vista. Maybe Microsoft should have got security right five or 10 years back, he admitted.More info at The Inquirer.
Holloway said that Microsoft wasn’t that interested in big fishes. It wanted to acquire small, IP related companies in order to improve its own products.
He claimed that Microsoft will launch twice as many products in the next 12 months as it released in the last three years.
