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.

apple filters engineered products through designers with taste before the products launch. so the end result is nice and pretty. apple leadership is responsible for this.

when microsoft leadership want something to look pretty, they hire a designer to do it for them. that's because, unlike apple leadership, microsoft leadership never understood both engineering and design. steve jobs did though.

the clusterfuck that is the history of microsoft.com design is the result of microsoft leadership having no taste. short but not sweet.

What's the emotocon for "rolls eyes"? It's needed as a response to your Apple propaganda.

BTW, your hero Steve Jobs is responsible for the tie-dye iMacs. And have you ever used the QuickTime player over the last 15 years? And how about all the fake leather and fake brushed metal and all the other "great" Apple designs? Explain that crap away before talking about what great "taste" Apple has.
