    Scoble your blog post certainly makes sense, however from all indications this is not Microsoft's plan at the present time. You wrote "We CAN NOT chase Google’s tailpipes. Audiences NEVER go for copies". Just look at Microsoft Live Beta, if Google slammed on the brakes..... what a mess.

    At the risk of feeding trolls..

    FEFX, At first glance, sure, things are the same.. But, the more you look, you see subtle differences, if you care to see it. If you are looking for an excuse to bash, simply look at the web pages, and dismiss it, which, perhaps you already have. 

    It's that kind of underestimation which makes me feel pretty safe (in terms of job security) working with Microsoft technology. it's the groups like the Mono project which, to me, are real competitors: they didn't dismiss C# and the CLR as a complete rip-off of Java. They saw the similarities, saw the differences, and are exploiting them (in a good way, I think). 

    People who simply give a glance at something, and very vocally dismiss it, I'm not too worried about them. They're overcompensating.. Wink

    Maybe I'm a little shallow, please point out those subtle differences you are referring to. I will also have to admit I didn't look long after I was hit by this:
