News; Microsoft to learn from Google
Recent reports have suggested, Microsoft desktop software is expected to comprehensive free! And there is another report also said Microsoft to learn Google go advertising road, is seeking in like Microsoft Money, Microsoft Office such products with the support of the advertising, even Microsoft Windows.
Microsoft to implement this strategy many reasons, but it is important to consumers is clear for software upgrade do and product development synchronization. Like many people, you tell him: "you need to spend $300 for a new operating system, the operation more convenient, more up multi-functional, but is not too big breakthrough." I want to more people reply to you is "no, thank you." .
So in this case, Microsoft even if a lot of money in investment in the development of the product, even if finally developed product is very great, but to ensure that people will use it? I think there would still be a lot of people will continue to hold their current Office suit, even if one day Office 12 began to appear in the retail market, actually Windows Vista case also is same.
Of course, software development can't easily suspended, but if this choice way according to the whole software and how to?
Someone has developed a more successful mode: Google AdSense. If Microsoft also decided to go this way, then with issues will also be a lot. First of all there will be a lot of risk, who know for in the task bar (or article tools), and the screen don't know where the information in advertising, when people see the reaction is what kind of. Want to know for "advertising" is always skanky! This need not I say more, a lot of people have met in the program of the implant advertising experience. How about the result, basically will choose its removed, to complete removed from found just a matter of time. Now how much people are willing to give up originally poor bandwidth and to be forced to of see advertising? In addition, for the present the most sensitive "privacy" problem, Microsoft also need to find an appropriate balance, don't take yourself to "self-destruct" way!
When Microsoft really want to push the free Windows, I want to popularity will very extensive, almost everyone will need a copy. Piracy may also is not necessary...... Perhaps in the near future, the most frequent may not like now of the Microsoft mood, more is to and broadband providers for bandwidth fight every day.
We imagine: Windows Vista will in in December of the release (if not jump ticket), and Microsoft is free, and we want to do is go to Microsoft's official server to download, then installation. If there are so many now who embrace Linux or is in Mac not to put, and loyal words, so I want to free more attractive Vista perhaps!
