Microsoft and updates

I think it's funny how writers will beat up Microsoft for releasing products too soon, or loaded with new, untested features yet then turn around and ask why the latest service pack isn't ready or why it only fixes bugs. Ugh. SP2 is getting this treatment now with article headlines like "Where, Oh Where Is Windows XP SP2?" or "Microsoft finally ships another beta of XP Service Pack 2."

This aritlce, from a few months ago, Jim Rapoza thinks Microsoft needs to get the new SQL Server released yet he doesn't mention one new feature that Yukon has that he needs today. His arguement is basically to upgrade for upgrade's sake! Last time I checked, SQL Server 2000 was still competing in the TPC scores.
