Microsoft Proclamation

Ouch. Micosoft is at it again. In Business Week, Steve Ballmer is quoted. “We won the desktop. We won the server. We will win the Web. We will move fast, we will get there. We will win the Web,” he says.

Molly, representing Web Standards Project, responds perfectly. She writes,”No Mr. Ballmer, Microsoft will not win the Web for one very good reason: We the people will make sure you never do.”

My concern is not with Microsoft as a company, but with its attempt to dominate once again. Little innovation occurs when a business dominates and since Firefox lit a fire proving that IE doesn’t remain the most used browser just because it’s there and loaded on all machines. People have learned there are other and better choices when it comes to browsers and Web-based applications.

I’m mad now. [Originally posted in the notes. ]
