Did MS Invent Anything?

Saturday October 17th, 1998

George Giannukos writes in with a link to an interesting article at PCWeek regarding Microsoft. George writes, "This is the first computer site telling it how it is! Finally, a computer site that is brave enough to bash Microsoft for all its illegal, anti-competitive practices..."

We've all known this for a while, but George is right - this is the first time I've seen this detailed in a major industry magazine.

On a side note, since the MS antitrust case directly affects this community, we'll be doing sporadic updates on the state of the case. Since most industry news sites don't have a talkback feature, we'll be linking to major updates from this site so we have a forum to talk.

Jim, when I said keyboard shortcuts, I meant within a GUI implementation where it's easy to get caught up doing everything with a mouse. On the other hand, I think that CP/M wasn't tied to one computer so Microsoft doesn't have any real innovation there. I also read in the paper that MS wanted to buy off palm OS? What-CE isn't good enough?
