Microsoft Now this is something you don't read every day. Dick Brass, vice president at Microsoft from 1997 to 2004, has written an article for The New York Times' Op-Ed section, detailing the flaws in Microsoft's corporate culture, and how they've severely affected the company in a negative way. Telling, and painful. And, in a way, very sad. Update: Microsoft responds. "For Microsoft, it is not sufficient to simply have a good idea, or a great idea, or even a cool idea. We measure our work by its broad impact."

Sounds like a disgruntled ex-employee

Cleartype has been in Windows since XP, but it was not enabled by default and for very good reason. Most people at the time still had CRT displays which do not work well with Cleartype at all. Tablet PCs were not very common ten years ago either. I know Microsoft has made mistakes but it's easy to be a Monday morning quarterback. This guy is just spouting a bunch of rubbish.
