Ray Ozzie Wants to Push Microsoft Back Into Startup Mode

“I love software, because if you can imagine something, you can build it.

I love Windows, because without it there would be no PC. There would be no PC developers. There might not even be a Web.

I love the ubiquitous Web because of the connections that it opened up.

I love competition. But when we're behind a competitor, I hate it when we find ourselves just chasing their taillights.”

Good stuff..

  1. teknologist says:

    That’s a bit of a crock though…

    Without Microsoft, there would still be a PC and there would still be a desktop.  The desktop would still be quite usable also…and without Microsoft, there WAS a web.

  2. Yeah maybe – but not as they exist and are used today.. Microsoft has made a lot of it happen.  (That’s not to say that without Microsoft someone else wouldn’t have done it.  It just wouldn’t have been done the same.)
