[Cartoon part of the Microsoft Blue Monster Series. Backstory from Steve and Kris etc.]
One of the ideas I’ve been playing around with the Microsoft Partner Group is- the idea of “crossing the chasm”.
i.e. Crossing the chasm between tinkering away with a neat new idea in your garage, vs taking the idea and turning it into a viable long-term business.
i.e. Crossing the chasm between “Idea” and “Execution”. That is where the bodies pile up etc.
And maybe, just maybe, Microsoft is a better option for making this crossing than Linux. Maybe not in all instances, but maybe for the guy who they’re trying to sell a package to, oh yes they are.
This cartoon was kinda me thinking along those lines…
