In the name of innovation

Many crimes have been committed by Microsoft in the name of innovation.
Not the least among them is the pain the company inflicts on the world through its MS Office software.  Though slow on innovation and providing capabilities ot integrate with a collaborative workplace, Word is a behemoth a relic of the past where users worked on standalone computers.  Yet, Office commands a lareg share of the marketplace due to Microsoft's dominance in the OS market.

One instance of how Microsoft freely "infringes" on other firms' copyrights while crying foul about open source comes to light with the news that a court rules against Microsoft.  The feature under discussion, customizing XML is being called as "obscure functionality" by Microsoft.  However, it indicates the technology unfriendliness of a company that only has cash cows in its product portfolio.
