The Problem is that he may be right

by Ken Houghton

Late to the party (only in part because my copies of Information Week tend to be 400 miles away), I find this gift from Steve Ballmer:
"We're not going to have products that are much more successful than Vista has been."

Paul McDougall posted more back on October 20th. The money quote, which immediately follows the Ballmer quote above:
Say what? Hang on a sec, would you please, Dear Reader.

Thanks -- I'm back. I just had to go dump a few thousand Microsoft shares. [Disclosure: I don't really own Microsoft shares, but if I did ...]

Personal full disclosure: I sold my shares the day after the crooks running the Second Circuit decided to overturn Judge Jackson's ruling on grounds that he was being mean to MSFT, since anyone who looked at the company then could see that breaking it up would have helped.

For more on how MSFT's monopolistic competition has hurt itself and its suppliers, see my post yesterday at AB. Or just, in Tom's words, "Get a Mac!"
