Microsoft Tries to Explain What Its .Net Plans Are About. Two years into its quest to create a new kind of Internet-enabled computing it describes as .Net, Microsoft found it necessary to pause Wednesday and try to explain what it meant. By John Markoff. [New York Times: Business]
Ok, to recap: Microsoft has been pushing .Net for two years (we've seen TV commercials also here in Italy), and now, after two years, they think they need to pause and explain what they meant?.
(Mr. Gates) said that the idea of the .Net infrastructure was clear, but acknowledged that the company had not created a clear view of what it intended for its customers.
Uh, yeah, sure. I think that all they are hoping to do is trying to keep their largest customers waiting while they're figuring out their next buzz word. Oh, sorry, they aready have it: Palladium.
