Questions about Microsoft
Posted 13 November 2006 - 07:01 AM
Microsoft is giving a campus career talk in our university tomorrow evening and I've decided to ask a question. Do you have any GOOD questions to suggest? As our university is one of foreign languages studies, students are far worse at computer than in languages, we cannot expect many GOOD questions tomorrow. Do you have any suggestions?

Thats not encouraging
Yes, MS Firefox is really funny. Let it continue to survive. Actually, that question would be embarrassing and Whizard is right, try to avoid it.
Jiangtian, I would suggest that you raise a question about Microsoft's policy about software piracy in China, because it has direct connection with the expansion policy of Microsoft in China. If Microsoft wants to expand its business in China, fighting against software piracy maybe the first priority. Is Microsoft willing to give very special discount or incentives to computer users in China? Attractive academic prices? Affordable bundles? Purchase by installments? Bear in mind that some students in China are very poor. Even if they can afford to buy a computer, they cannot afford to use genuine Windows. Forcing the poor students to buy expensive and genuine copies is not the solution.

It would be too early to suggest ways to cope with the rampant piracy in China, although I really have some ideas. I'll save those ideas for the interview, if possible.
I had thought of raising a question on the Microsoft Firefox 2007 Professional, in that case I'll reconsider it at your suggestion. A possible alternative for that question is how safe is IE7.
The campus career talk begins in an hour and a half.

Anyway, I asked besides the phishing site filter, what other new features had been added and what improvements had been made to make IE 7 safer than IE6. A product manager of Microsoft said that XXXXX (my student number) had asked a very professional question. But I don't think he has answered my question. He said something about RSS (which reminded me of Real Simple Sex ). The question was written on a slip and passed to him, above the question, I also asked whether they had heard of Microsoft Firefox 2007 Professional, but they didn't answer it.
Another funny thing was that he asked whether we had used Windows Live Messenger, nearly all of the students said yes. Then he asked whether we had used Hotmail, only 2/3 said yes, he asked what Email accounts the rest of us were using, and he got an unanimous reply: Yahoo! Then the guy said that Windows Live Mail would be launched today, which would replace the Email accounts we were using now.
