While on the Topic of Microsoft

While on the topic of Microsoft, I'm not sure how I've never run across this blog before, but it seems I am not the only one to think that Ballmer may be holding Microsoft back. At any rate, Mini-Microsoft is a very interesting read that is written by an anonymous Microsoftie who, despite being disgruntled, clearly still cares about the company. I already regularly read Scoble and will be adding this blog to my list.
In other Microsoft news, CNET recently interviewed Bill Gates. One funny quote: So that would be the philosophical difference between Microsoft and what Google is up to at this point?
Gates: Well, we don't know everything they are up to, but we do know their slogan and we disagree with that.
This comes off as meaning something like “We disagree with not being evil”. While he surely meant something like “Google says they are not evil, but we disagree with that”, it still made me chuckle the first time I read it ;)
