Microsoft business strategy, innovation, and turf wars

Confessions of a Microsoft employee: Microsoft was dysfunctional, and hurt by poor strategies and turf battles. As someone looking on at Microsoft from a distance, here’s my favorite quote from this story:

“The company as a whole seemed more and more focused on chasing competitors into any business where they might someday present a threat — which to me always felt like ego on the part of SteveB [CEO Steve Ballmer]”

That statement sums up my feelings about their approach to business.
