Microsoft Office Forced to Go Free
Who would have thought that Microsoft would one day be the pawn that they once played when they took out Borland by undercutting all of their software. Microsoft is not only being forced to offer their software for free but they are being forced to adopt Google’s business strategy. That is not necessarily bad, it is just that Microsoft will be at a great disadvantage while they try to learn the advertising based software revenue market. Great potential though with their huge installed based dabbling with this free online version with the potential to generate a healthy advertising profit. Let’s hope Microsoft does well enough to at least create a stalemate for competition. That is how we will all come out the winners.
