Is Microsoft Feeling The Heat?

Well, we are feeling the heat. That's for sure. Oh, but that's just cause we're experiencing a drought this winter and the sun has been out in abundance lately.

Hey, Lenn moved to California and it's been sunny in Seattle ever since. Or at least it seems that way. You'll see in the Bill Hill video (airing in early April) that it was quite warm out yesterday with a stunningly blue sky (we forget what that looks like in Redmond on some winters).

I have a conspiracy theory. Apple ordered the sunshine so that we'd go out and play in the sun and forget to ship any new software (funny aside: I remember when my friends who worked at Borland would actually pray that it'd turn sunny in Seattle so Microsoft engineers would be tempted to go outside). Who knows? Maybe Steve Jobs has a new way of controlling the weather.

Funny line from Bill Hill yesterday: "Scotland voted for global warming."

Seriously, back to the article. I remember people counting Microsoft out before several times in my career. Almost as many times as people counted Apple out.

Here's a hint: I'm not planning on looking for a new job anytime soon.

WebProNews added excerpt:

The critics were right: the Government's remedies have had little impact. Yet today customers are flocking to Microsoft's competitors. Hammered on multiple fronts by opportunistic rivals, the high-flying starship of the PC Age has stalled, and many wonder if it will now crash and burn.

...Its dominance challenged, Microsoft is naturally striking back - with a new, more bug-resistant Internet Explorer web browser, with vastly expanded email (Hotmail and MSN) offerings, and an array of intensive counter measures.

This looming competitive Armageddon may well rock Microsoft to its core, it most certainly will produce a new bundle of benefits for consumers - something the "antitrust case of the century" never did.
