It Takes 30 Months for Microsoft To Get a Concept to Market?

In regards to my earlier posting today that Windows Media 11 now officially has nothing RSS or Podcasting, Rob Greenly posted the following:

Everyone needs to remember that Microsoft product update cycles are very long and player 11 features have been set for 2 years now.

And since Vista ain’t out until 1/2007 (at the earliest), we’re looking at a 30 month cycle from feature lock to release.

Really?

Please tell me this isn’t the case.

I believe that we will see something from Microsoft soon that will start to address Podcasting as a type of attachment for a broader RSS support platform.

What is soon, Rob?
