Microsoft It turns out that a lot of people haven't been paying attention. Over the weekend, a story about how Microsoft is earning more from HTC's Android devices than from its own Windows Phone 7 sales spread all across the web, with surprised reactions everywhere. Anyone who has been paying attention to Microsoft's recent patent trolling regarding Android could've seen this coming.

Well, playing devil's advocate here - can you really blame Microsoft for using a system that is fully legal and endorsed?

(*hm* I got the impression that you don't follow the same route of reasoning when Apple is mentioned, do you?)

Windows 7 is a great product

Well, beauty is only skin deep. Judging from the ugly file system "tricks" I've seen so far, MS still hasn't learned to stick to clean, simple and transparent concepts.

Windows Server is very good competition for Linux on its own merits

Only if you like to be chained in the MS software stack. Windows Server is still massively laking outside of pure MS environments.

Windows Phone 7 is distinctive

ACK. They didn't simply copy Apple.

highly unique

Somewhat different would be more to the point.

truly innovative


when they read about the latest crazy legal antics from upper management - all that achieves is blemishes on perfectly fine products.

So MS has technical fine products but a crazy management. Sorry, no. Wake me up when those technical fine products are able to properly interoperate in a non MS world.
