Question for Microsoft … Why?

Posted in Uncategorized by Brian Russell on May 27, 2008

So here are my questions to Microsoft:

WHY?  Why so many versions of Vista?

WHY? Why so many versions of Office?

WHY? Why so many versions of Visual Studio?

 

Your competitor makes it very simple:

 

How are you going to win me back?  Making me choose from a laundry list of products and feel like I am inferior by picking something a little cheaper isn’t going to do it. 

Find a good price point and make a single product.  This reduces your costs for manufacturing, training, programming, marketing, etc.  It also carries with it the added bonus of making your customers feel like they are getting the complete package for the price they pay.
