Good points below.

I've been discussing this further with Shanen, and turns out he didn't realize 915 was not LDDM capable, when he made the suggestion yesterday. Funny thing is that Best Buy told Will Poole that two tier program could work from Spring.

Yes.

And -- what is the PM plan fro (sic) when Vista PR and consumer "awreness" (sic) will ramp up? This is a key factor in all this.

Yes, that PR plan is not locked yet. But it looks like CES, Beta2 would be big events from PR pov.

This is more about not letting OEMs lock in their product plans fully on 915, then letting Intel game us.

Brad and Shanen now aggree that single tier, Vista Optimized in may/june is optimum. Hopefully with their support and OEM div support, we can convince MSlevert and then Will poole.
