Re: What's in a name?
"Trademarks are specific to an industry. 'Windows' in the computing industry is a trademark of Microsoft, but that doesn't mean every glazier in the world is infringing on it, because they're in a different industry, so there's no danger of confusion."
Maybe but in the office you might like to refer to any inbuilt glazing as "Environment Awareness Panels" to avoid confusion with statements that include the word windows when dealing with IT issues.
And I guess the office is where MS are getting their inspiration for new products and names. Look left - Windows, look up Tiles, watch out for new likely new products called doors, walls, floors etc..
Re: Fashionable to mention Google
Get as many countries to sign up and pay a global standard rate (say 15%) and those countries that dont sign up, you charge any company using these registered "offshore tax havens" 30% tax on regional sales.
If the company uses Domino applications then leaving the existing mail is a sensible option. Many Domino / Notes apps assume the use of a local mail box so you would have to modify all these to be truly free of a Notes mail. Another points here is that archive mail usage tends to drop off dramatically after 12 months so why waste the time, cost and effort to convert especially if you have Notes apps? These days a lot of companies have a separate mail compliance system anyway from which any mail can be retrieved not just the bits that each user saved.

Nip down to your local Wm Morrisons - some of their own label branded product packaging (ceral bars / health biscuit snack bars etc) look like the Windows 8 interface.
Would you buy one if it were boxed like that?
Moot point I think.

Should be the other way round...
They ballsed the messaging up when they made BES work exclusively with MS SQL as a backend (why didn't they not offer an open source db alternative so each enterprise didnt need an expensive kludge for BB messaging sat on their network?).
On the other hand, a lot of (business) end users LIKE the BB keyboard instead of a finger smeared screen - the keyboard is much more accurate and quicker to type on.
Nicolaus Copernicus might have begged to differ.

F14's are in there too. Interestingly the AIM-54 missiles that the F14 carried were fire and forget, the onboard computer could track over 200 targets, work out which were the biggest threats and advise which to launch against. The missle did the rest being capable of out running anything in the sky in terms of speed (with the exception of the x-15), able to pull 9g in a turn and had the longest range of any missle in service. In contrast, the current F18's missle system requires that the plane keeps flying towards the incoming target to keep it 'illuminated'.
This appears to be a backward step but then again the US probably considers the F18 superior to anything it enemies can send up against it so why waste millions of dollars on missiles that can look after themselves. the end result is just the same.

Yup - Frontbridge springs to mind as a shiny example of this process.
@Perhaps Microsoft is there for another reason...
Or maybe MS have been invited along to see how project management should be be done and how products can be delivered within time scale without major issues?
@Cantankerous Old Buzzard
The spam filering is possibly:
FOSE - Forefront Online Security for Exchange, formally known as
MEHS - Microsoft Exchange Hosted Services, formally known as
Frontbridge - before MS bought the company.
Frontbridge used to be good but then went downhill fast - then the rebranding started...
@Cantankerous Old Buzzard
The antispam system is likely to be

It used to be good but then it went downhill fast - hence the rebrands.
