Mini-Microsoft, perhaps one of the most famous or infamous blogs among techies, has been around since 2004. The author, who remains anonymous, is believed to be a Microsoft employee, loves his employer, but pulls no punches about what's going on inside the walls of the mothership up in Redmond, WA.
I ran across this quote from 2004 this week, while researching another a story and I must share.
"We've pretty much won the feature battles and now our main competition is older versions of our own software (you know, that's just plain odd)."

Prophetic, no? Keep in mind, this was three years before the launch of Vista. When you think about the consumer outcry to hang onto the older Windows XP, clearly Mini-Micro's words still ring true four years later.
And it is odd!
