It Pays to Play Nice in the Sandbox

Microsoft is infamous for swallowing up companies that are more innovative than them. If you can’t beat’em, buy’em, right? Granted, they’re not alone. Contrary to what we Mac lovers would like to believe, the iPod isn’t the brainchild of Steve Jobs and company. Nor is iTunes. Nevertheless, Apple seems to treat folks a bit better in the sandbox if they don’t want to share their toys. The same can’t be said of Microsoft.

That said, I found it rather interesting that some folks aren’t even inviting Microsoft to their demos for probably this very reason. Check out the second to last paragraph in this article. Mind you, the last paragraph says quite a bit as well.
