Mini-Microsoft is a blog written by a Microsoft employee who, like me, believes Microsoft is bloated and ineffective. On recent acquisitions Microsoft made to secure Windows:

If we're the best software development house on Earth, what in earth does it mean that we can't ramp up to write great software to protect our own OS when it's under constant assault? Sure, there's some amount of fiscal responsibility in whipping out the acquisition, but didn't anyone see this slow train-wreck in progress and posit, "Hmm, perhaps we should go and write some of our own protective software?"
