[SWOT] Microsoft on the run?
Perhaps these spots have been running longer, but I just heard the
first one yesterday.
Office has always been a Microsoft cash cow. Is that cow now drying
up? I ask this because yesterday during a nationally syndicated
program I heard a radio commercial for Microsoft Office. No, the spot
did not mention a *new* version of Office, just Office. The spot
describes the features of Office and gives a URL for more information
including a download giving a 14 day free trial!
I heard the same spot this morning just before 7 AM CDT during the Wall
Street Journal Report on a different station.
Is Open Office now making enough inroads that MS feels the need to keep
its name out there? Or is this just a pre-emptive strike against the
upcoming OOo 2.0 release?
Whatever the reason, I applaud the community's efforts and do continue to
spread the word about OOo and friends.
