Narrator: When deep space exploration ramps up, it'll be the corporations that name everything, the IBM Stellar Sphere, the Microsoft Galaxy, Planet Starbucks.More [09/07/2005 12:09:00]
Crutch: Hey, you're lucky you weren't alive during the Microsoft conflict. Hell, we were beating each other with our own severed limbsMore [04/29/2008 12:04:00]
Steve Jobs:
The problem with Microsoft is they just have no taste. They have no taste and I don't mean that in a small way, I mean that in a big way.

Seth Davis:
I read this article a while back, that said that Microsoft employs more millionaire secretary's that any other company in the world. They took stock options over Christmas bonuses. It was a good move. I remember there was this picture, of one of the groundskeepers next to his Ferrari. Blew my mind. you see shit like that, and it just plants seeds, makes you think its possible, even easy. And then you turn on the TV, and there's just more of it. The $87 Million lottery winner, that kid actor that just made 20 million o his last movie, that internet stock that shot through the roof, you could have made millions if you had just gotten in early, and that's exactly what I wanted to do: get in. I didn't want to be an innovator any more, i just wanted to make the quick and easy buck, i just wanted in. The Notorious BIG said it best: "Either you're slingin' crack-rock, or you've got a wicked jump-shot." Nobody wants to work for it anymore. There's no honor in taking that after school job at Mickey Dee's, honor's in the dollar, kid. So I went the white boy way of slinging crack-rock: I became a stock broker.

Quicken or MS Money?

Chris Pirillo:
Quicken! 'Cause Microsoft doesn't own it. Yet.

We are fucked. Take a look at the world we inherited. We're a bunch of fast-food munching MTV freaks humping the great Amercian Dream. The generation before us sold their innocence for 200 digitally enhanced satellite stations, and it's been downhill ever since. They had Mickey Mouse, Easy Rider and The Beatles. Alright? We got South Park, The Blair Bitch and Ricky Martin. Alright? They had "Be here now!". We got "Shit Happens!". If that doesn't put thinks in perspective, i dunno what does. I mean, we're just Microsoft Neanderthals addicted to surfing netland, still shitting in our nests. And every time i think about giving a rat's ass, i picture Monica making millions from sucking Bill's little red rooster. Just rockets me right back into reality.

At Microsoft there are lots of brilliant ideas but the image is that they all come from the top - I'm afraid that's not quite right.More [07/03/2011 10:07:02]
Google, Microsoft and Yahoo should be developing new technologies to bypass government sensors and barriers to the Internet; but instead, they agreed to guard the gates themselves.More [07/30/2011 10:07:37]
It is to our advantage, and to the advantage of our customers, that Microsoft distribute its Internet Explorer technology in as many ways as possible - as part of Windows 95, separately from a full Windows 95 distribution and as fully integrated with Windows 98 - so that this new technology is present on as many customer systems as possible.More [10/03/2011 11:10:17]
I wish him the best, I really do. I just think he and Microsoft are a bit narrow. He’d be a broader guy if he had dropped acid once or gone off to an ashram when he was younger. [On Bill Gates, The New York Times, Jan. 12, 1997]More [10/05/2011 09:10:22]
The only problem with Microsoft is they just have no taste. They have absolutely no taste. And I don’t mean that in a small way, I mean that in a big way, in the sense that they don’t think of original ideas, and they don’t bring much culture into their products.

I am saddened, not by Microsoft’s success — I have no problem with their success. They’ve earned their success, for the most part. I have a problem with the fact that they just make really third-rate products. [Triumph of the Nerds, 1996]More [10/05/2011 09:10:42]
I'm just an observer of Java, and where Microsoft wants to go with C# is too early to tell.More [10/13/2011 06:10:35]
I think it's clearly Yahoo. Microsoft and Yahoo like each other and have worked together in the past.More [02/12/2012 03:02:14]
Notes servers run on Windows servers, Notes clients run on Windows. There is a lot of need in the IBM community to make sure Notes is compatible with Office. So it makes sense that Microsoft capitalizes on this before IBM gets traction with Workplace.More [07/10/2012 04:07:57]
The truth, ... is that Microsoft has been a monopolist found by a federal judge to have undercut innovation and hence competition and consumer welfare.More [12/03/2012 07:12:26]
We continue to believe that, at the margin, Microsoft shares should outperform over time, owing to the outlook for above-average revenues and profit growth, ... But there are qualifiers, and finding catalysts is key.More [02/17/2013 12:02:42]
If Microsoft can't get operating leverage when it's in its biggest product cycle ever (and customer interest is high), when can the company show leverage?More [02/17/2013 12:02:07]
Microsoft has had two goals in the last 10 years. One was to copy the Mac, and the other was to copy Lotus' success in the spreadsheet - basically, the applications business. And over the course of the last 10 years, Microsoft accomplished both of those goals. And now they are completely lost.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
John D. Rockefeller wanted to dominate oil, but Microsoft wants it all, you name it: cable, media, banking, car dealerships.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
Entrepreneurs always pitch their idea as 'the X of Y', so this is going to be 'the Microsoft of food.' And yet disruptive innovations usually don't have that character. Most of the time, if something seems like a good idea, it probably isn't.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
In the future, when Microsoft leaves a security-flaw in their code it won't mean that somebody hacks your computer. It will mean that somebody takes control of your servant robot and it stands in your bedroom doorway sharpening a knife and watching you sleep.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
With our technology, with objects, literally three people in a garage can blow away what 200 people at Microsoft can do. Literally can blow it away. Corporate America has a need that is so huge and can save them so much money, or make them so much money, or cost them so much money if they miss it, that they are going to fuel the object revolution.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
Well we have a good working relationship with Microsoft at the development level. But let's not kid ourselves, this is a company with enormous resources and talented people, and there is a certain pride that comes along with that for them and for us.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
Microsoft isn't evil, they just make really crappy operating systems.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
Well Microsoft really does develop some really interesting technology.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
Because Microsoft seems to sometimes not trust customer choice, they salt XP with all these little gizmos and trap doors to get people to try Microsoft stuff. But the reality is that we're downloading more players than we ever have on a worldwide basis.More [03/12/2018 02:03:32]

Microsoft has stepped up to the plate in a way we've never seen before.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
One cost people don't factor in is that of a tried-and-true support mechanism. If [a Microsoft] product fails, we have a single phone number we can call.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
To me, Microsoft has behaved like the clear-cutters of the computer software industry.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It is definitely true that having a common foe does give you something to shoot at. I'm just hoping that we don't fall into a pattern of simply playing catch-up with Microsoft, which is a danger.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

Our customers operate predominantly within the Microsoft environment and it is critical to them and to us that our software solutions are robust and reliable.

Microsoft has said the decision could hurt the overall economy; it's something that's been followed like no other case; and its happening in an industry that's changing very rapidly where justice delayed is justice denied, ... All the elements are in place for them to take it.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The biggest hurdle is those that have relevant information may be afraid to come forward, ... PC makers may have a lot of useful information, but if they rely on Microsoft, there may be some reluctance to come forward. Hopefully, this will show the government is serious and those companies will go forward.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
[Microsoft's omnipresence was apparent at the show in statements from executives of open source companies.] Microsoft is the largest software company in the world. They are our competition, ... The day when they're not the competition is when we'll stop talking about them.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
That was a real slap in the face. I think they perceive Microsoft as part of Western hegemony somehow.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Microsoft has a tremendous amount of patience, which can be inspiring or distressing, depending on your point of view, ... they will have waited so long for so little and have been willing to spend a long, long time in the red.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

The only thing which has kept Mac OS X relatively safe up until now is the fact that the market share is significantly lower than that of Microsoft Windows or the more common UNIX platforms. If this situation was to change, in my opinion, things could be a lot worse on Mac OS X than they currently are on other operating systems.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

In the past, it has always been if the company signs it, then it must be authentic. Microsoft needs to look at the digital signing process or else we will see more things like this and that is pretty dangerous because that gets around some of the safeguards that are supposed to keep these things out.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Microsoft's exit from this market should lead to more rational pricing and likely improved profitability for Intuit's TurboTax. In an attempt to gain market share, Microsoft dramatically cut unit price, a move Intuit was forced to match.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
They are very strongly positioned in the tax market with Microsoft having moved aside. Clearly there will be some competition ... but if you don't have Microsoft in that market, there's a lot less price pressure to worry about longer term. That just leaves the brand strength to Intuit.More [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
