As far as your Mundie comment, apparently you didn't actually listen to the interview? And for other execs, again, you must not listen very effectively?
just watched the Mundie interview. Your right, Charles, I was off the mark with my comments. Mundie's comments are pretty substantial.
I still stand by my sentiment that I enjoy very much programming MSFT products, but using the end products is very often a sub standard experience.
It took me minutes to learn gmail. Vista desktop search is still a mystery to me. Outlook, excel, active directory - daunting all.
The sentiment behind my post is that the higher level execs at MSFT have to be held accountable for the useability of their products. ( All they have to do is spend a few days trying to use the stuff. ) If their products dont work well, they should have to answer for it. The leadership of Microsoft should not allow the google search engine to work better than search.live.com .
Your interviews are terrific. thanks.
