Poor Microsoft. Once the the king of computerland, now fading fast as we rush to embrace our new love, Google.
Earlier this week Harris Interactive released its annual list of the top 10 best and worst corporate reputations in the States. Last year, Microsoft was number one, the most loved corporation in America. This year, Microsoft has fallen to 10, while Google tops the heap.
What caused Microsoft’s fall? Could it be because of Vista, its new beast of an operating system, known primarily for resource hogging and driver issues? Or all that anti-trust stuff in Europe? Perhaps it’s because they still haven’t built a decent anti-virus program into their operating system.
Whatever it is, at least they can take some cold comfort in one thing: despite those “I’m a Mac and I’m a PC” ads—they still beat Apple.
