Check it out: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2009/12/23/i4i_word_microsoft_xml/ I have to say that this surprised me. Many have taken on the Redmond beast in the gladiatorial arena that is the US justice system but few have ever concurred the beast and come out unscathed.

Check out this article: http://www.channelregister.co.uk/2009/09/21/microsoft_web_office_preview_review/ I can honestly say it would really rock the foundations of my world if Microsoft every had an original idea of their own.

Microsoft potshot: Oracle raising it’s pricing structure

Microsoft, Oracle, pricing, SQL

Take a look: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2009/07/27/microsoft_disses_oracle_pricing/ So Microsoft reminds us that SQL server is still available at the same cost while Oracle is raising it's prices. Now if only SQL server was any good .... they might just have something there.
