Microsoft just can't win. After taking quite a beating (deservedly so) for their software's flaws, when they decide to stop pumping out new operating systems at the same rapid pace that caused many of those flaws, they get criticized for moving too slowly. It wasn't that long ago that similar articles were screaming for Microsoft to stop just releasing new operating systems every few years and, instead, focus on fixing what's already released. That's basically what they're trying to do (successfully or not), and the thanks they get are people trashing them for taking so long to get their next operating system out. I don't think there should be any rush for them to get Longhorn out, if they can actually get XP working better. People don't need to jump operating systems every two years.
