This is quite an interesting list -- top 10 security/quality issues Microsoft should address asap -- per eWeek
"The corporate world is unsure just how well it can trust Microsoft's Windows 7. Windows Vista was a nightmare that most companies didn't adopt. Internet Explorer is in the news, thanks to a security breach. And Windows Mobile is still the also-ran in the market..."
"Microsoft's security woes are troublesome. Not only is Windows not nearly as secure as users would like, but Internet Explorer is causing trouble for users as well. "
"A quick glance around many of the markets where Microsoft operates reveals a staggering issue: the competition is innovating far more rapidly than Microsoft. "
"Microsoft's strategies have focused mainly on the short term. The future of software is, at least by most accounts, centered on the Web. And yet, as the most important software company in the industry, Microsoft is lagging behind the Web software innovators. That's a major blunder"
Watched Avatar in Imax. What a treat. The whole family enjoyed every bit of it...
Interesting to see this article on "is this concept really possible": http://www.cnn.com/2010/TECH/02/03/avatar.technology.science/index.html?hpt=C2. Personally I dont think its gonna take centuries to realize this vision. Probably a decade. I bet :-)
Interesting analysis on why America needs to innovate, quickly : http://www.minyanville.com/articles/economy-innovatation-jobs-unemployment-graduates-PhDs-students-xerox-microsoft-bell+labs-ibm/index/a/26717/from/yahoo
"The future of America is presently in peril, not just because of the shadowy ways of the "banksters," but because of a sputtering innovation engine that's had the fuel choked off"...
And this article in New York Times by Dick Brass who was a Microsoft VP around 2004: http://www.nytimes.com/2010/02/04/opinion/04brass.html on Microsoft's creative distruction:
"But the much more important question is why Microsoft, America’s most famous and prosperous technology company, no longer brings us the future"...
"No one in his right mind should wish Microsoft failure. And yet it is failing, even as it reports record earnings."
"Microsoft has become a clumsy, uncompetitive innovator. Its products are lampooned, often unfairly but sometimes with good reason."
"Microsoft is no longer considered the cool or cutting-edge place to work. There has been a steady exit of its best and brightest."

What has the IBM Power 7 launch got to do with Smarter Collaboration?
Primarily on TCO, Total Cost of Ownership...
For example, Lotus Domino on POWER7 consumes 4.9 times less processing resource per task than Microsoft Exchange on Nehalem. So what? Well Lotus Domino can support more users at 40% less cost!
WebSphere Application Server on POWER7 can give around 4x the transaction throughput of .Net on same number of Nehalem cores.
Imagine the productivity and cost benefits to 100s of millions of Lotus collaboration software users...
Imagine the boost to 10s of millions of Domino applications in use...
