Microsoft Watch – Business Applications – Will Microsoft’s Katrina Goodwill Go Bad?:

Joe.. I’m a small business.  I buy SBS 2003 on open value so that the payments can be spread over three years.  I’m not alone.  You know what else is available if I’d want it?  Microsoft financing.

Microsoft Partner Readiness:

I’m not sure this is too little too late… I was listening this morning to NPR and there’s still places that don’t have telephone service back.  I mean how can you run a business without some of these basic infrastructure items in place?

Newsflash for ya Joe.  Most partners that service small businesses are small businesses themselves.  How big of “partners” do you think these people are?

Is there an element of PR?  I haven’t met one of these offers yet that doesn’t have a bit of PR.  But I think there’s more here than meets the eye.  Businesses … middle class… professionals need to come back to the area.  Small Businesses make up the foundation for that middle class.

I think there’s a lot of business rebuilding left to do….
