Microsoft is the Soviet Union

"Microsoft is going the way of the Soviet Union. Their insular management culture simply can't accept that computing is leaving the IBM x86 PC behind, and is moving on to the web, mobile devices, and cloud computing. Apple knows what people want and builds it. Microsoft builds 90s tech and tries to persuade people to want it. Then, on the high end, low cost newcomers are delivering *more* performance and functionality for less money, or even free. I'm thinking of MySQL over MS SQL Server, and for small to medium businesses. There's just no reason to buy Microsoft anything today." (logic Jul 25, 2008 4:23 PM GMT)
