The Microsoft SMB Parallax | Looks Cloudy:
“It seems that MS heads are just in the Clouds. Feels (and sounds) like they are only listening to a small subset of partners and are not listening to any other feedback, especially from clients (end users), through their partners. Very sad. Feels like they have their eyes and ears covered.”
I hate it when Vlad blogs a post that is spot on with what I see others feel. When he touches a nerve he tends to spear it with a knife and make it bleed a bit. And I’m not convinced Microsoft is actually even listening to partners, unless those partners are by the names of Dell and Geek squad.
I also don’t like it when I’m told that I have no choice. I do think they are choices, but as someone said the other day, we’ve all gotten soft and lazy and flabby and not exercised our muscles to devise our own solutions.
So how about we start talking about some of those options — Kerio (www.kerio.com ) is one
http://www.clearfoundation.com/Software/overview.html is another. Thoughts?
