Microsoft returns to its roots at Build with smart cows

Rob Enderle | May 4, 2015
I was the top launch analyst for Windows 95 and that product effectively launched me and I've worked with that firm for two decades now. Since then I've watched and been troubled by the many unfortunate changes and mistakes Microsoft has made.

With Reactor Space they are embracing the little guy again, and given that all of these big companies started with just one or two folks and an idea, enabling the little guy may be the strongest new/old strategy Microsoft has ever brought to market.

Personally, I like this a lot better than the other big service, How Old, that it launched this week that guesses how old you are. It'll do great things for the cosmetic surgery market. Apparently, I now look 10 years older than my wife, something she got a kick out of, me, not so much.

Strangely, in over 20 years, it seems like Microsoft has now gone full circle. I kind of missed the old Microsoft, and it's nice to have them back.
