The Life and Times of a Dev Yes, we're really that weird

It's not just Microsoft that has delays.  If this had been Microsoft telling people that they'd decided to pull developers off to work on the IPhone, you'd have heard about how evil MS is and how they are never going to release and how typical this is, blah, blah, blah.

You'd also hear about how they had released a vaporware product with the IPhone and how they should be sued for publishing a product before it was ready.

So, my question is, how much of the IPhone presentation was smoke and mirrors?  How close will the final product come to working like Job's demonstrated?  Why do they need more developers?  Shouldn't they already be done and worrying about distribution with only a month left to go?

I'm betting the Mythical Man Month will hit them and the IPhone will be late.  Sounds like Leopard is pretty buggy too . . . better wait for service pack 1.

You're right about this. There is a double standard. Apple drops the ball and no one blasts them about it. Of course, neither company should be dropping the ball at all.

I don't think the post was mentioned Vista specifically or made a direct comparison between Vista and 'Leapord'. The post stated that Apple does have delays in releasing products but get a pass from the tech media that Microsoft does not get.
