Frank X. Shaw has posted on the Microsoft blog a list of Microsoft alternatives to Google — in case you are concerned about Google’s motives. Two things:
1. It should strike you as awesome that Microsoft did this, because think back 10 years and try to imagine them being this snarky. I love this post. Not because it is helpful, just because Microsoft seems to be everything that Google didn’t want to be, but now somehow Microsoft is looking better than Google.
2. Holy crap Hotmail has “hundreds of millions” of users.
You may not want to switch from Google to Microsoft, but you have to hand it to Microsoft that this is a pretty great post. The people reading the Microsoft blog are likely the people willing to switch to Microsoft.
