Microsoft "This week marked the real launch of the new Microsoft.com home page. And as someone who has been involved on and off with the project from the moment it was conceived, I thought I'd tell you the story, albeit extensively abridged, behind the new Microsoft.com. Grab a seat." I love the new Microsoft site. It looks very clean and focused.

Yeah, and it still offers FUD, like "Bing vs Google", "Microsoft vs Linux".

How can you tell if someone is too weak, unskilled, unsuccessful in whatever he's doing? He [they] compare themselves to others, not to their previous work, not to their future plans, not to what they have actually done.
They must be very frustrated. And I don't blame them. They can't produce anything that would be both reasonably usable, cheap and interresting. ALl they produce is overblown crap, unintuitive UIs, broken "standards" and a huge bucket of arrogance to start with.

You mean like Apple has done with Mac vs Pc ads, and Samsung with GSIII vs iPhone 5 ad?

Yeah, its something you do because you aren't the market leader. Not necessarily because you have a worse product.
