Actually I hope so. I really don't see the urgency to push out another major architectual overhaul so soon. Remember how happy the the System 9 folks were before 10 came around? Okay maybe Joe IT MCSE can't wait that long, but really, they should stuff as much pork into that shumai before steaming it.

Okay that's a little strong. But who loves all the crashes since System 6? Do I see any hands?
