I had coffee with an ex-Xbox guy yesterday. He told me about how, when it was started, it had the standard gung-ho, all hands on deck, entrepreneurial startup feel. Success came, and then came the execs from other parts of the company rotating in. The ones that didn't like rapid change and quick decisions, because coming Windows and Office are like the Titanic - they're slow to steer. So out went the execs that were quick and nimble and in came the ones that, while very successful, were slow and lumbering. Great for an old behemoth like Office that would be hindered by rapid change. Awful for a young product but makes sense given what we're seeing.

Yeah, absolutely. It's been bludgeoned by that wonderful Microsoft 'culture.'
