Microsoft: Hey Wordpress.com – how would you like to take over our 30 million Live Spaces users?
Wordpress: Sure – what do we owe you for it?
Microsoft: Nothing. And we’ll even tell everyone how good your service and company is too.
Wordpress: Gee Thanks! You did say you were calling from Microsoft right?
Interesting news – microsoft is killing live spaces and telling everyone to move on over to wordpress. They announced it in this blog post. It’s really very unlike what i think the general perception is of Microsoft. Sounds like a great move to me though – I mean does microsoft have to be the best in every area? I’d be happy to see more innovation in the microsoft stuff that we ARE using – windows, word, excel, powerpoint. So kudos to them for picking their fights, knowing where to focus and knowing how to hand the ball over when they’re not going to hit a homerun. And happy early christmas to wordpress.com!
I wonder what other areas Microsoft should get out of while they’re at it…
