跟 Microsoft 打官司偶而就會因為法院命令而得知一些公司內部的 mail，像是 James Allchin (Microsoft 的前主管) 在 2004 年一月寫信給 Bill Gates 與 Steve Ballmer，對於 Microsoft 發展 Longhorn (Windows Vista 的前身) 的方向不滿，說他如果不在 Microsoft 上班的話，他寧可去買 Apple 的 Mac... XD：
I am 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 doesn’t translate into great products.
I would buy a Mac today if I was not working at Microsoft. ... Apple did not lose their way. ...
