TeeTime, however does not seem to give a rat's rectum about issues that concern all of us, such as who ultimately controls the data. Nor does he address the concerns that MS will attempt to make parts of the internet totally inaccesible to Linux, Apple, etc etc users. Do you trust MS to handle all your personal data?


It concerns me - a lot - but it is in fact also the reason why I just bought shares in MSFT. I don't like it but I learned last time that it can sometimes be worth investing in things that I don't like. More to rhe point MSFT has cracked the piracy problem with Hailstorm because it doesn't work properly unless you register and are connected to MSFT. Also (and rather unnoticed) MSFT and Nortel announced that Nortel would provide the server load balancing kit required for .NET . If .NET goes well then this endorsement will hurt another rule maker - Cisco

What think you of Open Source? Its the one obvious threat I can see to MSFT especially as we move back to dumber terminals and smarter servers.
