Just by looking at M$ history we all know that their only interest is
$$money$$.  Even if the product is not fully tested/bug-free and if 20% of
it works, they spit it out and leave the dirty work (and headaches) to the
system administrators and everyone else who's not a "plain non-technical
user" just trying to get their memo or spreadsheet done.  Then after that,
either M$ continues to "develop" the product with their famous "Service
Packs" or drop support after 1-3 years and force everyone to move in their
stream (which continues to produce $$money$$ for them).
