SLATE chairman Vern Raburn, a former Microsoft vice president, on Microsoft's product release strategy: With few exceptions--say, DOS and Microsoft's products for the Macintosh--they've never shipped a good product in its first version. But they never give up, and eventually they get it right. Bill Gates] is too willing to compromise just to get going in a business. That's what happened to OS/2. Also, he's very action-oriented and believes that it's better to make a decision and correct it later than not to make a decision." (Quoted in Fortune, 6/18/90)
