Microsoftâs $6B deal for aQuantive fell flat, but could pay dividends later

,----[ Quote ]
| Three years after Microsoft agreed to buy 
| Seattle-based digital advertising company 
| aQuantive, the Redmond companyâs ad 
| revenues have barely budged, its online 
| losses have soared, many of aQuantiveâs 
| top executives have left, and one of 
| aQuantiveâs biggest units has been sold.
| Itâs not the outcome once envisioned from 
| the $6 billion acquisition, which remains 
| the largest in Microsoftâs history.


Microsoft lacks edge

,----[ Quote ]
| Instead of suing, why not just build 
| better products? When customers use CRM 
| they are looking to build an edge on their 
| competition by improving relations. 
| Microsoft should improve relations with 
| all the time and money they spend suing 
| their partners.

| ...I'm not looking forward to having to work with Microsoft employees.
| From what I've seen, all you do is bitch about your jobs.
| We ship software, alot of it, and hardly ever have to work more than 40 
| hour weeks. And our products are highly reliable and actually work.
| I don't look forward to having a bunch of Microsofties working on our
| products, bitching about our processes, because thats all you guys seem
| to do, I'd put one of our offshore developers against 10 of yours,
| attitude is everything. Your egos are sickening.

| shocker!!!!
