I mentioned this to my younger bother the other day. He was not old enough to remember it. One of Microsoft’s first failures.

As usual, excellent reading from Daniel Eran Dilger.
Also as usual. Microsoft nasty business practices. I wonder if Microsoft has ever created something from scratch.

More headaches for Balmer
One new survey of more than 1100 IT professionals from small, mid-sized, and large IT organisations worldwide has revealed that an astonishing 84 percent have absolutely no plans to upgrade to Windows 7 during the course of the next year – and that in the face of some pretty encouraging and enthusiastic reports from beta testers so far. The company which commissioned the survey, KACE, tells us that the leading concerns cited for this no adoption/slow adoption strategy were software compatibility, cost of implementation and the current economic environment. It also says that concerns were apparent across IT departments of all sizes. 72 percent indicated they were actually rather more concerned about upgrading to Windows 7 than staying with an outdated XP operating system.

When will Microsoft learn? They are simple light years behind google in search technology. No matter what they do they will never catch up, they are simply to far away.
They are getting ready (for the fifth time, i think) to relaunch their search engine. After the all failed, msn.com, start.com, live.com this time it will be Kumo.com. From the screenshot below we can see they have done everything possible to copy google’s layout. (yes, Microsoft is really good at copying, never at innovating).
Kumo, Kumo? Steve, how about buying the search.com domain? It should be a bargain for you.
No need for a crystal ball here, this is Microsoft’s next failure. What do you think?
