Product Roadmap Is Over-Hyped

If I were an IT department, and I'm planning based on product roadmaps released by company, I'll be busy upgrading all my internal applications now so that we can upgrade all the Longhorn machines to the next great Windows OS release.

Product roadmaps are over-hyped; I don't know why companies still do their planning based on promises by technology companies (read: Microsoft) because these "promises" are never really kept. If I am an IT department (which, granted, I never was, so I am just a layperson) I'll plan based on what is released, not what is promised.

Of course, having said that, I would like to know whether Apple is planning to release a small-sized notebook, because I am planning to buy a new laptop and I am eyeing the cheapest MacBook Pro right now... :-)
