Microsoft’s Lost Decade

by Kasper Tidemann

Vanity Fair has published a highly interesting article about Microsoft, the company we all used to loathe because of their relentlessly awful browser, operating systems that would crash and slow down over time, messed up Visual Studio libraries etc. But what went wrong exactly?

Kurt Eichenwald, the author of the article, points his finger at Steve Ballmer. Apparently, his enthusiasm – awe-inspiring as it is – wasn’t enough to steer Microsoft clear through the last decade. An interesting read indeed.
