I’ve just read a brief interview of Microsoft’s vice-president of research, Richard “Rick” Rashid.
In it, he talks about technology, about social networks, about open source software and, more interesting, about the competition for Microsoft:
“You have to write software and build systems with the perspective that you have an adversary and in some cases your adversary has more resources than you do. That’s the situation that’s out there now. It’s a constant battle.” (Emphasis mine)
This is a scoop!
Someone from Microsoft conceeding that “your adversary has more resources than you do”
I’m sure the thousands of twenty year old hackers writing Ajax applications will be delighted to hear that.
