Microsoft prospers by taking someone  MAR 22 2001

Microsoft prospers by taking someone else's good idea (the Web browser, the Web server, the GUI, etc.), throwing lots of resources at it until they get it right (IE 1.0 sucked, IE 4.0 was light years ahead of the competition), and then pretty much dominating the market through sheer size and leverage. The Hailstorm and .NET stuff shows that Microsoft is getting better and faster at their "Borrow. Iterate. Dominate." strategy. That's a little scary.
