No, it doesn't make sense...I don't think Redmond missed the point at all,
they're trying to introduce a concept totally new to the everyday user who,
like Valdis said, only "...wants his dancing hamster screensaver.", and will
blindly click any OK button that pops up.  Ultimately, Valdis is right,
Redmond cares about profit, and creating an OS that is irritating to the
everyday jackass does not help their profits.

Wait, so is he right when he said all they care about is profit, was
he right when he said they intentionally missed it or both?

No, he isn't. But they're an enterprise, and they like money more than
good code. The Marxist product-based profit posture enforced in the
referred software vendor is a curse through which organizations let
quality go for the mere financial benefit of some banking accounts.
Agile methodologies and its horrible "extremme programming" (XP)
premises constitute a few examples.
