Avie Tevanian on Windows’s Architecture

Randall Stross, for a piece in today’s Times advocating that Microsoft take the time and effort to re-architect Windows from the ground-up, asks Avie Tevanian’s opinion:

I asked Mr. Tevanian if he thought Microsoft could pull off a similar switch.

“Perhaps, but I don’t know if it has the intestinal fortitude,” he said, “At Apple, we had to. It was a matter of survival.”

That’s an astute point. For all the problems with Vista, Microsoft’s profits and revenues are just fine.
