Default Microsoft plans to develope apps for the iPhone too!

Chalk up another developer up for the iPhone App Watch: **Microsoft**.
Microsoft has a small team called the MacBU that develops the very
successful Office Suite for the Mac -- an office suite that until the
recent version was widely thought to be more advanced than even its
Windows counterpart and in some ways a "test bed" for features that
would eventually make it into the Windows version of Office. It may
surprise some to hear that Microsoft is looking at the iPhone for
development, but it ought not.

Just what we need: iPhone versions of the blue screen of death and
other bug-ridden rubbish. :-\

Being it can only run one app at a time, why should that be a problem ?

How else are they going to get a office suite into the iPhone along with
both Microsoft Exchange and ActiveSync support without Microsoft ?

You don't. What you do is the reverse and get rid of Microsoft from the
IT industry. It's only so invasive and "neccessary" because so many
fools keep buying and using their garbage.

It's actually already happening, just very slowly. Users are refusing
to take up Vista, shops forced to re-intsall XP on new computers,
countries and US states are taking them to legal courts, people turning
to alternatives, etc.

Microsoft has been dubious quality and had dodgey business practices
from the beginning, and now more and more people are finally waking up
to that fact.

Here's even more evidence from todays news stories on Slashdot.org ...

Microsoft Brand In Sharp Decline
--------------------------------
A recent poll of about 12,000 US business decision-makers
by market researcher CoreBrand found that Microsoft's
brand power has taken a dive over the past four years.
According to the study, Microsoft dropped from number 12
in the ranking of the most powerful US company brands in
2004 to number 59 last year. In 1996, the company ranked
number 1 in brand power among 1,200 top companies in
about 50 industries. The CEO of CoreBrand said: 'When you
see something decline with increasing velocity, it's a
concern.' To add some historical context, IBM suffered a
much faster and more severe decline in brand power in the
early 1990s and it took them 10 years to rebuild the
brand's reputation.
