» Sour grapes or rush job?

Bloomberg (via Mary Jo Foley):

Chief Executive Officer Paul Otellini told employees in Taiwan that Microsoft Corp.’s Windows 8 operating system is being released before it’s fully ready, a person who attended the company event said.

Improvements still need to be made to the software, Otellini told employees at a company meeting in Taipei today, said the person, who asked not to be identified because the meeting was private.

As Foley points out, this could be sour grapes on Otellini’s part since ARM-based systems will ship first.

Whatever the case, I hope it ships soon. I’m not sure how much more popcorn I can eat.

Feelin’ really… bloated.
