    I think Microsofts biggest problem here is ignorance. They are not used to being the underdog or even being pushed out of the market they once had a reasonable presence. They have never really lost a war, battles yes, but not a war, and they are about to loose to probably their number one rival at the moment in the market.

    Google is becoming a software powerhouse that Microsoft can't beat. Google is building up such an arson of packages and PR that I think Microsoft are looking at a much bigger picture -

    Windows will soon be at war with a new os from Google. Microsofts big grip on the world will come under attack soon by the company that is taking chunks out of them already. Google OS might be only aimed at netbooks and tablets, but its the start of something much bigger and Microsoft have to stop Google somewhere and make a point of showing the world, what google can do, Microsoft can do better.

    Although I think personally, what Microsoft do, Google can do alot better.

    They also need to start launching their better products worldwide in a timely fashion. For an age i wanted to splash some cash their way on a UK version of a ZuneHD but its been soooooo long and still not even got there that when i replaced my mobile i went for one that could pretty well cover most of the things it could do.

    Even if it does eventually hit Europe it won't be getting my cash now.

    Isn't that the point of this article. The division is just to slow and conservative at taking risks. In this space features and shiny GUI's sell and it just seems like these are irrelevant at Microsoft - heck I think WM7 is the first release to ditch the Start button!
