Core vs Edge, Pt 2

MS Classifieds - link. Too little, too late, too lame.

Honestly, if there's one company in the world that has no hope of developing edge competencies, it's MS; because edge competencies are about the very things MS is not - openness, transparency, anarchy, fuzziness, sharing.

Guys, I think you're better off sticking with the core (aka being evil).

Is the core gonna be a)around and b) big enough for MS? :-)
