Marc Orchant’s thoughts on a simultaneous Vista and Office 2007 launch

Good buddy Marc Orchant reports on a rumored simultaneous launch for Vista and Office 2007 later this year. I have to agree with Marc, users making the double upgrade may be biting off more than they (or their systems) can chew. There are dozens of good comments to Marc’s post so give it a good read and chime in with your thoughts. My favorite quote from Marc:

I have mixed feelings about attempting a 2006 (?) version of this nuttiness. To be sure, there’s a lot to be excited about in both releases. And Microsoft is gambling big time on these releases to reinvigorate their two primary revenue streams. But I worry that, in an effort to maximize excitement, what will actually take place will more like deer-in-the-headlights paralysis than cattle stampede.
