RantShould Micro$oft seriously think of re-defining their slogan? Pin
Vasudevan Deepak Kumar20-Nov-12 5:05

Microsoft's general marketing slogan is

"Your potential. Our passion."

But I seriously doubt whether they are business enablers any more because most of their products are often retarding the day-to-day progress not to mention the amount of insecurity and heightened lack of confidence it instills in our mind.

The imminent failure of Windows 8 as illustrated in http://www.extremetech.com/computing/140664-three-weeks-in-the-lackluster-launch-of-windows-8[^] is another salient testimonial for the same.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep!
