So Bill Gates' latest animal is finally being unleashed in the corporate jungle. From today Microsoft's corporate partners can get their hands on what's being billed as the biggest software release in ten years.So have they been falling over themselves like hapless zebras in a stampede? Not exactly. Most businesses say they won't be upgrading for another year or two. Which is a shame really, because, even if it doesn't have all the killer features we were hoping for, it does look pretty.Seems that doesn't wash with IT departments who have more pressing concerns like software compatibility and the inevitable serial flow of bug fixes.Meanwhile us trainer-toting types won't have to decide for another two months whether to jump. The consumer launch isn't slated till the end of January.
