Why is it that when Apple or Google do something good everyone cheers, but when Microsoft does it people complain and sue them?
Take the search function of Vista for example:
- Mac creates Spotlight and everyone raves about it.
- Microsoft create what would have to be their best in-built search function yet into Windows Vista and Google files a complain with the Justice Department about it.
So if Microsoft succeeds it’s bad for the consumer, but if anyone else succeeds it’s good for the consumer.
I remember the world before Windows became dominant on the desktop, and it was a messy world. Does anyone remember OS2 Warp?
So success it a good thing, but too much success makes you evil…
Funny world, ain’t it.
