It's sad that so many people can't see past the words "Paul Thurrott".

It's also sad that people feel the need to condemn this news post as not worthy. Do you people visit other news sites and crap all over their news choices also? Or are you just annoyed that Neowin didn't post the exact same news as 100 other sites, and seeing this oddbal article threw your RSS readers off?
