Microsoft Research...why make the effort?
,----[ Quote ]
| What research is for, in cases like Microsoft, is status. It's a very tax
| efficient, with many valuable and wonderful side effects that occasionally
| benefit the company, but its primary task is marketing. It's proof, even in
| these most distressingly modern of times, that patronage works.
"Innovation" or "R&D" are buzzwords for investors and customers. Useless BS.
Practical development drives products.
