Allchin would get a Mac, if he didn't work at Microsoft

Posted on Saturday, December 16 2006 @ 04:05:41 CET by


Windows development head James Allchin told Steve Ballmer and Bill Gates in 2004 that he would get a Mac if he didn't work at Microsoft:
I'm not sure how the company lost sight of what matters to our customers, both business and home, the most, but in my view we lost our way. I think our teams lost sight of what bug-free means, what resilience means, what full scenarios mean, what security means, what performance means, how important current applications are, and really understanding what the most important problems our customers face are. I see lots of random features and some great vision, but that does not translate into great products. . . . I would buy a Mac today if I was not working at Microsoft.

In response to the e-mail's unearthing, Allchin wrote up a post in his blog earlier today that says his statements were merely "a rant encouraging a change to the way we [Microsoft] were building Windows at the time."
This mail surfaced in the Comes v. Microsoft antitrust trial this week.
