Microsoft Microsoft's CEO Steve Ballmer had some interesting things to say yesterday about which companies Microsoft sees as its competitors in the client operating system space. You'd think Apple was their number one competitor - and you'd be wrong. Microsoft sees two other competitors as their primary adversaries.

I will admit I have a Microsoft comfort curve keyboard, I love it. I have another in the box still just in case this one ever breaks. It's a wonderful keyboard. I'll agree with you about not buying their software, but damn they make a good keyboard.


Credit where it's due MS do make very good input devices.

As cynical as I generally am about anti-Microsoft posturing, I've always found that their input devices (mice especially) seem like cheap knock-offs of Logitech products.

That is because Logitech makes both keyboards and mice for Microsoft. They are engineered at Redmond and contracted out to Logitech, much like the iPhone is contracted out to be made by a third party vendor for Apple.
