Microsoft Opens Gates/Ballmer Kimono

Microsoft has one of the best Web sites for journalists in PressPass. In it are links to press releases, Q&As, photos and whatnot. It also links to articles from outside publications.

I had just finished reading an article in the Wall Street Journal, and was surprised to see Microsoft linking to the same thing. You see, this article delved into a multiyear power struggle between Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer that paralyzed many important Microsoft initiatives. Not an entirely positive piece.

You have to be registered for the Journal, but here's the article.
