Reader Response: Microsoft and Google Go to Court

Ah, litigation. Where would IT be without you? Where would America be without you? But we digress... Not long ago, we wrote about Google winning a freeze on Microsoft's cloud deal with the U.S. Department of the Interior. In response, reader Philip thought that we might have thrown the word "winning" around to casually, but he's right with us other than that:

"I would not say that Google won in this case. They are simply going to get a better chance to present their solution. Ultimately they will most likely lose the business to Microsoft again.

Perhaps Google should improve their products and make them superior to Microsoft's rather than acting like a spoiled and whiney child who came late to a birthday party and now wants cake after everyone has finished. 

Google's cloud products and policies are amateurish and only suited for the SMB marketplace and for those that cannot afford better. You would think that after conquering the search engine marketplace with a superior solution, they would understand that they would lose business to a superior technology in another area.

My advice to Google: Grow up and make your product better than Microsoft's rather than litigating."

Philip, that was tremendous and dead on. For once, we have nothing to add. Thanks very much for your contribution.
