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.

Tried it, didn't work well

I went on the new site and, using both Opera and Firefox, attempted to purchase a copy of Windows 7. Neither browser was supported enough to allow me to enter my information and confirm the order. Firefox faired a little better, but not by much. Haven't tried the site with Chrome/Chromium, but it seems to me that Microsoft designed their website to work with recent versions of IE only. Not a good plan if it blocks people from purchasing their products. Navigation of the new site seems a little better than it was, but not by much. MS still has one of the most awkward websites to navigate I've been on and it takes far too long to load some pages. From a technology company I think we could expect better.
