It is arrogance and managerial ineptitude. With a monopoly command and 
millions of lemmings blindly following it is just too convenient to ignore 
standards, trends, and reality. Just look at the overpriced crapware that 
Microsoft puts out yet being hopelessly behind in virtualization and cloud 
technology. As long as people keep buying the stuff and the number of 
Microsoft-only shops grows there isn't much incentive to change anything. If 
you want Microsoft to shape up you need to get a lot of people to stop buying 
their cruddy products, especially in the enterprise arena. Good luck!
