Google Hates Microsoft, Google Loves Microsoft
Dan Gillmor talks on the Silicon Valley blog about how Google's programs have all been released for Windows, and how the reason is because that's where the competition is, so that's where the battle must be fought. He says:
Actually, this is the same old story in some ways. Given Microsoft's monopoly status, it's almost impossible to compete with Microsoft without simultaneously boosting the monopoly.I couldn't agree more.
Also, in off-topic news, InsideGoogle was pre-empted for the last seven hours by Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. My review: go out and buy it!
