So Microsoft is going Retail

Let's think about the overall retail experience for a minute. Apple Store employees will spend a half hour with you, discussing the relative merits of a $1499 Macbook Pro vs. an $1199 Macbook. Microsoft salesmen will spend 14 hours with you trying to explain the difference between Vista Ultimate Home Media Center and Vista Business Pro Ulitmate Experience, defending the decision to offer no clean upgrade path from XP to Windows7 Not-Quite-Ultimate-But-Really-Leading-Edge so that they can sell you the $320 package vs. the $249 package.

I finally understand the 'genius' thing.
