One theme we didn't mention is that Microsoft is going to push its partners
hard this week to get out there and sell Windows Vista. It's not surprising,
but if you have any doubt that's going to be a theme, consider that the only
Microsoft literature in the bag that attendees are getting when they check in
at the show focuses on Vista. One is a whitepaper called, "The Business Value of Windows Vista:
Five reasons to deploy now." The other is the letter from Bill Veghte, senior
vice president of the Online Services & Windows Business Group, to Windows
customers titled "An Update on the Windows Roadmap." The message of the letter
is that Windows XP is still available in several ways, but Windows Vista is
really the best choice and Windows 7 isn't coming until 2010.
