Feel Bad For Microsoft

Have you ever felt bad for Microsoft? Read this article about the IT industry shifting away from Microsoft. Do you feel bad now? Didn't think so.

I do feel bad for Robert Scoble , a good guy and blogging friend, who will be devoting the next 2-3 years of his life to Longhorn, the next version of Microsoft's operating system. Microsoft is making a huge gamble - moving away from the extremely popular browser based interface. All the smart money sees a disaster, but try telling the most successful software company in history that they are making a big mistake - after all can 50,000 *smart* people be wrong. The short answer is - yes.
