Former Microsoft VP Dick Brass weighs in on why Microsoft ‘no longer brings us the future’
It’s a sad tale, if you hear Dick Brass tell it. In a new op-ed for the New York Times, the former Microsoft VP explains how he thinks the Microsoft corporate culture has "never developed a true system for innovation," and that while the company is obviously strong at the moment, he doesn’t see the company retaining its dominance if or when the Office and Windows revenues die down.
And here’s Microsoft snappy retort to the chidings of Dick Brass. Quite honestly, it’s a pretty weak rebuttal. I don’t think OneNote proves they understand Tablets (lest we forget Microsoft tried the Tablet market in 2001 and failed miserably). And yes ClearType is installed on millions of machines, but that wasn’t the point. It could have been out the door several years earlier.
