Everyone is holding their breath until Thurs., Oct. 22, the national rollout day for Windows 7. And while early reviews are favorable, developers and end-users alike may worry about the reliability of the platform. Vista, as we know, was a debacle. And those of us clinging to XP on obsolete old desktop machines may dread learning the quirks and "features" of an entirely new operating system.
So, per Bloomberg News, we don't know whether to be reassured or worried by this admission from Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer: His teenage son was one of the testers. Writes Bloomberg, "Ballmer says his toughest critic is his 14-year-old son, who has helped find bugs in the software." So at least we know games and Facebook will work.
