Comment on "Apple's Secret Ingredient"
by Samo Korosec — Sep 05
Comparing Microsoft's "upgrades" to Apple's upgrades without extrapolating for Microsoft's size and money they have at their disposal is a bit simplistic.

"Microsoft have a *much* larger audience than Apple and are limited with what they can do to their systems. Apple's users will simply adjust to whatever changes come out of Cupertino."

Microsoft's problem are not the customers, the customers adapt. Microsofts problem, imo, is the middle management that is basing their decisions on buzzwords and bad taste. As such, they don't attract the right kind of employees that can make something special. Microsoft is not a place that someone who has good ideas and is able to implement them wants to work. And even if they do, their ideas rarely make it past middle management.
