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."

Sorry, no sour grapes here. And yes of course they did have competition at first, and MS did very well indeed. I remember the coexistence of Lotus 123 and Excel in my Mac and my PC, same with WP and Word...but it did not last long IMO. They had great products and they do have great products now, but that does not change the fact that they have remained alone at the top for many many years, that is a de facto 'no competition'(monopoly), right?
