Speculation is hardly the evil that some would have us believe. Release product, sell product, who cares what's gone before.

As for preannouncements, as the user known as No doid (I can supply you with a new one, if you want) puts it - surely the only detrimental ones of them have come from certain overzealous hardware manufacturers (and then, that detriment is self-inflicted, no?).

As for the El-reg comments - if you want sensible, mature discussion on this topic, look here ([link]) but in the meantime, drobe.co.uk makes me chuckle. Which is more than I can say about certain other stagnant (broke server - bah) sites.
