And there we go again. Recently, Microsoft has made a lot of good decisions, especially when it comes to collaborating with WaSP about having their products, such as .NET, generating more valid and accessible code. This also includes in getting their next version of Internet Explorer to implement a better support for web standards and CSS. All this is great news and very good for the future. The developers at Microsoft seem to really try to do a good job.
But then Steve Ballmer comes along with this quote in Business Week:
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.
But the problem is, especially in light of all the good things Microsoft have done recently, these kind of statements just ruins the goodwill created, it just annoys people who have recently started to think about changing their opinion about Microsoft and to forget the past.
Ballmer is probably just doing this to spite, or to get Microsoft investors all aroused. But please, some balance…
