Did MS Invent Anything?

Saturday October 17th, 1998

George Giannukos writes in with a link to an interesting article at PCWeek regarding Microsoft. George writes, "This is the first computer site telling it how it is! Finally, a computer site that is brave enough to bash Microsoft for all its illegal, anti-competitive practices..."

We've all known this for a while, but George is right - this is the first time I've seen this detailed in a major industry magazine.

On a side note, since the MS antitrust case directly affects this community, we'll be doing sporadic updates on the state of the case. Since most industry news sites don't have a talkback feature, we'll be linking to major updates from this site so we have a forum to talk.

I think Netscape's rise in the corporate market has more to do with the fact that the people in charge or implementing corporate IT strategies are realizing the folly of locking themselves into MS products. In the long run, Netscape's the safer bet -- especially now that the source code has been released.
