Software Deployment Question
Microsoft Installer an obsolete platform
InstallAware is announching that with the release of their direct deploy "technology" windows installer will soon be obsolete:
Now InstallAware 18's Direct Deploy is the final nail in the coffin for the obsolete Windows Installer platform!
So I just bought InstallShield 2013. What do you think, did I back the wrong horse? Will MSI technology soon be obsolete and replaced by a technology develeoped by a small turkish software vendor?
I am really confused.

It's best not to believe marketing material, especially in the technology field. Fast Token Ring is one of my favorite examples.
To be clear; there are no nails in any coffin for MSI technology. It is the best method for deploying applications to a Windows system. Nothing comes close - period.
