Microsoft does something cool. Frost sightings reported in hell.

I used to say that Microsoft never produced a technological innovation in its history, preferring instead to make money by stealing other people's ideas and squashing the competition with unfair business practices. But I have to admit that this looks pretty frickin' cool.

MS has done some good in the world. The two things that come to my mind are financing a great deal of the development of GHC (they employ both Simon Peyton Jones and Simon Marlow--there are many other interesting things going on in their Cambridge Research Laboratories as well) and LINQ, which idea is in fact a massive step forward in bringing relational theory into the practice of the masses.
