When Will Apple Grow Up?: "For example, a real enterprise vendor wouldn't rely quite so much on secrecy and the element of surprise to create excitement for its products. A real enterprise company also would have a product roadmap and an extensive, open beta process for its operating-system products, which could prevent missteps such as Tiger's issues with Microsoft servers. The way I see it, Apple can be a company with big secrets or it can be an enterprise company, but it can't be both." I quote the same article from below once more and ask the question: Why doesn't this apply equally to Microsoft? Why are elements of what is going to be in Longhorn still a mystery? If Apple hasn't grown up to use Coursey's metaphore (and I agreee that it hasn't) then isn't Microsoft playing on the same swingset?
