Julia Lerman, an independent software developer in Fairfax, Vermont, said she does not expect the beta delay to affect her work. “In this early stage, the people who should be fiddling with Longhorn probably already have access to it and will continue to see pre-beta bits. I currently have so many things to learn and experiment with that Longhorn is a constant temptation that I have to set aside,” she said.
Unfortunately, the article author has only so much room for quotes, so he couldn’t add in that I had also said that it is worth the wait so that they can get current security issues worked out and that it will only be that much better of a product and a more stable and representative version of what Longhorn will be in the long run. Darn I wish he had been able to put “Burlington, VT” in there.
