I am sure I am not the only one who has had an ever evolving relationship with Microsoft – some good, many bad, but more recently ending up closer to better than worse, so that’s something. I don’t think anyone, including myself, gives them full amount of credit they deserve for all they have accomplished. They have driven innovation, whether they meant to or not – say IE leading to alternative browsers. Regardless, they have been a staple of our lives, so here to them and 41 years – raise the metaphorical glass for a toast.
