Nopers. The “Wow” doesn’t start Now.

Windows Vista Launch

Found this at Seth Godin’s blog where he very rightly observed that none of the Microsoft Execs seems to be smiling at Vista’s Launch. Maybe because they were supposed to smile four years ago when Vista was supposed to be originally launched?

Com’on guys! Show some passion and excitement for your stuff. Or else, why should I be excited if you yourself are not?

    That picture says it all! I certainly dont feel any excitement or “wow” after looking it at.

    And why should they be excited? The OS has already been exploited, people are complaining thats its bloated, hate the fact that its infested with DRM and worst of all, people aren’t feeling the strong need to upgrade.

    Microsoft is in a tough position to revolutionize the user experience while keeping the familiarity that users are comfortable with and ensuring that the OS is compatible with the ad-hock applications rolled out in the enterprise market space, their bread and butter.

    Microsoft doesn’t have the flexibility it needs to meet all three objectives so what do they do? Roll out 100 flavors of the same OS.

    This might have been the time for Miscrosoft to divide and conquer. One OS for the home user and small office enviroment focused on the bells and whistles and a second OS for the enterprise users geared towards compatibility and server level application management.

    But… as you said, this was six years in the making. Maybe this will happen in ten more.

This is a viral video from Youtube that is getting a lot of attention.

I will let the author set the scene:

It was back in Oct 2005.

My wedding was about a month to go and I decided to make a memorable event for my future wife. But, I and she were working and due to preparation of wedding, I didn’t have enough budgets for expensive proposal. While I was considering for the event, I remembered what she said in the past. “Wow it would be great if I can get a chance to go in the room with full of yellow post it just like Sang Sang Plus” (Sang Sang Plus is one of the famous talk show (TV program) in Korea and they prepare a room with full of yellow post it – questions from fans to famous celebrity)

I wrote all the happy memories that I had with my wife in 5,940 post it. It took me 4 days & 5 nights to write everything and post it in the bathroom. (I tried main living room first, but, due to surface of wallpaper, I had to change the place) Once we back from honeymoon, we took all the post it off and kept it in the box until now.
