Why does Microsoft love to shot itself in the foot?

We all love bullies and while Microsoft slowly spirals into the IT black hole they have created they continue to use 1980s tactics on companies all over the world.

Frankly I am tired of Microsoft and it’s hatred for Open Source and other competitors. I may need to rephrase that. I don’t mind competition, but I do have disdain for Microsoft in that they are the biggest loser right now in every market they used to own. IT and people are catching wind that they stink as a company, and then they go around the world threating companies who don’t use their products.

Hey Microsoft, if you made a tablet OS that ASUS and Acer wanted to use you would not have to threaten them with a fee….how sad is that?

I am pretty sure at this point Microsoft is never going to ever consider me for any position ever there. I am starting to get the feeling Microsoft is about to consume itself and before it happens I want to get it on the record as predicting it now. The Windows 7 OS is good but not super. The Office Suite is different and new but not super, the Server offerings are confusing and expensive for most companies, and the other products like Phone 7 and XBOX are floundering and shrinking.

I use an XBOX and it’s a good system but it lacks the quality of SONY…not to say they can’t fix that but the XBOX seems to be the only product that keeps selling and they don’t have to give away….
