So your point is what? They now made this too quickly? You really think nobody had thought of win7 previously & been planning for a long time...?

Woah there! Aren’t you missing the whole point in your rant?! You’re trying to take the flexibility out of agile methodologies and re-define them to how it works in your world. The beauty of these values are that they can be applied appropriately on a per-team/organisation basis. Whatever allows a team to work well together, and to be focused on producing working software is a good thing. There are loads of implementations of out there, be it XP, MSF, TDD etc each with their pros and cons to be considered.
One of the key ‘agilists’ themselves, Barry Bohem makes this point in his IEEE paper “Get Ready for Agile Methods, with Care”. This explains that you can’t be dogmatic about agile methods – the correct implementation has to be decided depending on the team, the customer & nature of the project among other things.
Your alternative wording of the manifesto might work for you, but other project managers should implement this as they seem fit.
