Everyone Knows Microsoft Is Stodgy?

In an article on PC World, Matt Smith sings the praises of Microsoft’s Research and Development department – but not before making a bold (and dodgy) statement:

As far as 99.9 percent of the world population is concerned, Microsoft is a stodgy, old-guard technology company. Its bottom line is fully leveraged against PC operating systems and business software—hardly the building blocks of a future-thinking portfolio, right?

99.9 percent? Do these 99.9 percent think the software is made by accident too? What then plays out is a chance for him to list recent projects, many of which we already know about, in an effort to win the prestigious “Best Microsoft Shill” award. I think the TV show Hawaii-Five-O is still winning in this one, though.
