Microsoft Innovation

from the bought,-borrowed,-or-stolen dept

A little article in the SF Gate laughing at Microsoft’s claim that they should be “free to innovate”, and points out that every one of their “innovations” are either bought, borrowed, or stolen. While I think it’s too easy to take potshots at MS these days, I think this article doesn’t even cover half of the various ideas that MS bought, borrowed or stole… Though, at the same time, it’s tough to deny that they did improve most of these products. Perhaps not drastically, but certainly to some extent.
