Meanwhile read what joel has to say about microsoft live.
This isn't exactly the response I was talking about. How did I know that MS would learn all the wrong leasons from google. This is just like the whole network computer thing come back to haunt us. Someone at Microsoft needs to hammer it home to the executives. Microsoft just is not a "hot" "sexy" company. We don't care if they did "google" earth first, because google did it nicer. I hope one day Microsoft gives up on these ventures and goes back to being a buisness company.
