Commentary: Will the real Microsoft please stand up?
,----[ Quote ]
| Mention Microsoft, and some would think of Bill Gates, the Windows
| computer platform and the world's largest (and richest) software company.
| For a certain group of people, however, Microsoft is the embodiment of
| an evil empire lead by a Dark Prince, conducting questionable business
| practices toward maintaining its (monopolistic?) market leadership.
| Perhaps what Microsoft should do as a whole is to play better with others
| and listen to its user base. The world and markets have changed, yet a
| number of companies and organizations continue to struggle to maintain
| their old business models. Using legal tactics instead of true
| technology innovation will not endear nor create loyal customers.
