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:
- 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.
- 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.
