I wonder if this "Premature" statement is nothing but a form letter for every IT-industry exec? Sort of "If you don't make this observation, your own board will suspect your ability to lead"?
DOS 4.00 was immediately followed by DOS 4.01 within 30 days. Premature, eh? DOS 5 has a 45-day update release. I can't find anything on prior DOS releases, but I'll bet the Update Revision Numbering System was well in place by DOS 3.
We know that all the Windows releases have endured similar user and "industry expert" observations.
An Intel CEO saying this seems to be bandwagon'ing.
Fortunately, no one's EVER mentioned SandForce BIOS issues to him.
Or maybe when digging for those Denial form letters, these "DOS / Windows Is Premature" form letters were found?
As was the form letter "And I deny this observation comes from a form letter."
