And good luck to him I say.
We all know where we are with MS - they produce software/tools we have a choice to pay for it or go without. Do you guys slag off your local petrol/gasoline sation when filling your car - no you don't because you have a choice.
Q) Who is paying Microsoft for the Research, Development and Production.
A) We the people that decide we NEED their product and therefore purchase it.
To me that is business, and something i can trust!
Q) When a company like Google rolls out new product after new product with no real money map who is paying for it.
A) I assume ultimately the adwords account holder.
This is something i can't trust! What's to say that five years down the line when we can't live without all these new google products such as 500gb (hehe) email accounts etc etc that they then hit EVERYONE with some ridiculous high ended subscription charges. Yes we will then have a choice but by which time could be too late since we actually NEED them for our everyday life.
