Microsoft: innovator or catcher-upper?

Posted by Kim Peterson at 11:59 AM

Quoted:

Microsoft is troubled. They've grown to the size of IBM when they ran circles around them, and they behave like IBM, they even talk about themselves like IBM used to talk about themselves, showing a dangerous confidence that is very un-Microsoft.
--Software developer Dave Winer, in a debate about Microsoft's ability to innovate in today's Wall Street Journal
Microsoft is struggling -- struggling to stay important to a new always-on, always-connected world. Microsoft made a bet against the Web back about five years ago and Microsoft is struggling with that mistake.
--Former Microsoft evangelist Robert Scoble, responding to Winer's comments
