How to succeed without really trying

After the CLUG meeting tonight, as I walked with Blaz trying (and failing) to catch up with someone who doesn't want to be mentioned on this blog, I had a realisation. Microsoft, in 31 years of its existance, has got to earning over 44 Billion US dollars a year by lying, cheating, and a huge swathe of unsavoury, antisocial and illegal business practices. In under a third of that time, Google has come to earning 6 Billion a year, while "doing no evil" and providing a service that just did exactly what people wanted.

Who says the good can't get ahead?
