What are your top ten issues for 2005?
Directions on Microsoft released it's “Top 10 Issues that Microsoft has to overcome for 2005” and included in there were a couple that caught my eye in Silicon's version:
• Better security - "despite laudable efforts by Microsoft, such as drop-everything-else code review, security is still a problem… In fact, the bad guys seem to be winning."
• Doing a better job of convincing customers they can get more out of their software by deploying newer versions.
• Making the PC a home entertainment hub, not trailing integrated digital lifestyle approaches at the moment led by others, notably Apple.
That one caught my eye in particular because everyone that I know that has a Media center edition computer says it does EXACTLY that. Now while “I” would love it to natively be a domain member out of the box [you can do it if you install it from stratch] the reality is, in my opinion the product is already there but like the Tablet PC, the “ooh ahh” of getting it out in the marketplace needs to be majorly worked on. The display I saw at CompUsa the other day underwhelmed me a bit. You almost need to have a living room set up to showcase this.
So read that list. Do you agree? What are “YOUR“ top ten issues for 2005 that you'd like to fix?
