Microsoft Following in the footsteps of the likes of Apple and Sony, Microsoft has announced via a press release that it is going to launch a chain of Microsoft-owned and operated retail stores. From the press release it becomes clear that the retail stores are not so much about making huge profits, but more about learning from customers what they want and to spread the Microsoft brand.

Here is a suggestion, focus on a lean and mean Windows! Get rid of all of the crud and just create a lean and mean Windows.


They are way ahead you - it's called "Windows 7" ;)

Uh, judging from the public beta, Windows 7 is far from lean. It's leaner than Vista, but even OS X Leopard is lighter than that hog of an os, and no one can pretend OS X Leopard is small.
Granted, I am judging from the public beta, and it's not the final. Hopefully MS can make it leaner and meaner, but I doubt it based on their previous track record.
