Nordquist: Spending less time in a Microsoft World

Windows is a now a commodity. With high speed internet and new web technologies, the days of “install, patch, patch, patch…” are over. Microsoft reminds me of AOL in the mid 90’s when many first-time interest users thought AOL was the internet. Once AOL customers realized what was available beyond the wall they wanted to participate and left AOL by the millions.

That’s what happening to Microsoft only the walled garden had been created with bloated, expensive software with hundreds of features most people don’t need. As people realize how easy, inexpensive and accessible web applications are, they won’t want to go back Microsoft and their way of doing things.
