His comments are all so subjective. Take for instance, this one:
'However, Microsoft's announcement that Avalon will be available for other versions of Windows indicates to me that they are not so confident on the uptake of Longhorn, and developers will not write applications for Avalon if they are not convinced that there will be the clients that will run it. '

I'd say it was just as likely that it's the other way around: Microsoft would like companies to take up Longhorn by giving their developers a head start. A significant proportion of developers write business applications , and .NET is very good for this, even with the clunky old Windows Form interface.
