Fiji's fury over Microsoft's Pacific solution

,----[ Quote ]
| "Fiji's military government has written to the software giant Microsoft 
| demanding the company not use their country name in any of its products." 
| Fiji's interim attorney-general Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum today released a letter 
| sent to Microsoft's co-founder Bill Gates yesterday, after media reports the 
| software company may call its yet-to-be-released software "Windows Fiji".  


After Data Corruption Server and Windows Vista, Microsoft's reputation is in
the gutter (see links below) and Fiji is a subling (same codebase).

They probably see what's coming. Articles and blog posts that say "Fiji is
s**t", "Fiji crashes", "Never consider Fiji", "Fiji sank"...


Windows ‘Fiji’ beta testing has begun

,----[ Quote ]
| Speaking of Microsoft information lockdown, there’s been no word in ages from
| Microsoft about “Fiji,” the next version of Windows Media Center Edition.


Google reputation hits top spot

,----[ Quote ]
| Google has finally managed to push Microsoft from its top spot.
| The Vole actually fell to tenth place in the annual Harris Interactive
| Reputation Quotient poll, but overall, the tech sector did outstandingly well
| this year.


Microsoft’s credibility turning to junk while Linux revenue grows

,----[ Quote ]
| Sweeping changes are needed in Microsoft’s go-to-market approach, and it may
| find more success by creating products like Live Writer, which found a huge
| following right away. Continuing on its current path, the company will
| continue to destroy its credibility and build animosity with users looking
| for quality products on their terms.    


Microsoft Plummets, Retail Falls While Beauty Gains in CoreBrand 2007 Brand
Power Rankings

,----[ Quote ]
| The annual "CoreBrand Brand Power 100" Branding Index(R) of 1,200 US
| corporations ranks Coca-Cola Company and Johnson & Johnson at #1 and #2
| respectively, unchanged since 2004. Meanwhile, Microsoft's corporate brand
| declined in stunning fashion over the past four years, falling from 11 in
| 2004 to 59 in 2007 Microsoft, a decline of 48 places!    


,----[ Quote ]
| Would you believe... that Microsoft has dropped down to #86 within the
| Fortune Best Places to Work survey? That's down from #50 in 2007 and #42 in
| 2006. Like a rock. In a bad way. And who is #1 for two years in a row? Grab
| that chair and give it a big effen toss in the air to Google! Toot! They get
| bigger and they're still #1.    


Apple has biggest impact on world consumers: survey

,----[ Quote ]
| Microsoft, the world's largest software maker was also a winner, but it
| received the dubious honor of the brand most readers wanted to argue with,
| and the one they most wanted to revamp. Voted into second place in the
| category was brand USA.
