Is Microsoft a Platform Dancer?t

If you watched Charlie Rose last night,
…you heard the common assumption that Microsoft is lagging because it spends too much time protecting Office and Windows. I say that's myopic. Microsoft treats developers like royalty. It nurtures 5hem from beginner to expert. Their great innovation is to turn curious people with problems into innovators or connect them with solution providers. Office and Windows aren't products. They're platforms. The Cloud will make them platforms in hyper-drive. If Google had spent half the energy nurturing Wave developers  The Vista of collaboration would be evolving into its Windows 7.
