Microsoft Oh irony, thy silver thorn strikes like the moonlight through my delicate skin. While this complaint could actually hold merit, the fact it's coming from Microsoft lessens its validity somewhat. Redmond has just filed an antitrust complaint about Google in Europe.

I'm not a big Microsoft fan, but there is at least one domain where they have been doing a lot of development : realtime 3D rendering (aka games) [1]. Of course, NVIDIA and ATI played their role in these developments, but it's a team game.

Microsoft research also has a lot of interesting projects and is employing a lot of smart guys :

Now, what's funny is that they are complaining in the context of search and mobile phones... and yeah in these domains, I haven't seen a lot of innovations from them =)
