You've missed my point entirely. I am not making the assertion that
applications will have a three-year lifespan. I am making the assertion that
Microsoft wants us to start thinking in terms of applications having a
shorter lifespan. Do you see the difference? This is a marketing stratagem.
Microsoft seeking to bend minds and set expectations with respect to ROI.
Do you see why I said that you had not read my original message carefully
when your reply was to say that *I* was exaggerating, and that applications
will have a longer lifespan?
