Windows Server Division WebLog : Windows Server 2008 Timing Update:
And I just have to comment on that blog post…. this MVP heard about the new RTM date on blogs (including Mary Jo’s) and I hope that some MVP didn’t take possible private communication and release it to a journalist. It’s good that Microsoft is open, but whenever it appears that people who are under a nda possibly forwarded information and possibly without approval, (yeah I know that’s a lot of possibles that I just wrote) it’s a concern to me that people aren’t respectful of the trust they are getting. I see in this web 2.0 blogger world a loss of ethics and morals and I hope her comment is based upon official information she got from a PR agency…not from a forwarded note that some MVP got.
Is it any wonder that Apple keeps lids on their communication? Is the announcement a biggie? No. Actually I expected this. But her comment just brings up my concern for the loss of respect for ndas these days. Word is Vista sp1 is on bittorrent. When people that do the right thing get this… and people that cheat get this it’s a sad commentary on our society, isn’t it?
