Microsoft’s creative destruction

Dick Brass has published a very interesting article about Microsoft:

I’ve read and heard that things like this go on over at Microsoft, but this is far more concrete and disappointing.

Of late I’ve been wondering how Microsoft could have such absolutely terrible marketing.  I’ve been amazed that their mobile story has been so bad and the Windows Mobile OS release just keeps getting pushed back.

They’re development tools are absolutely amazing, and continue to get better with each release – perhaps the developer group is more an insulated from politics?

I hope they can turn this around – developing for Windows with Visual Studio is a beautiful experience, and being able to easily integrate with Office is fantastic.
