User Experience in the Microsoft World
Like several other large technology companies, Microsoft has started talking a lot about the user experience. Dan Lewin, who is a corporate vice president of .Net Business Development at Microsoft did his bit in an article titled, "The User Experience Matters" for AlwaysOn.
This article is worth reading not because it talks about user experience beyond the web interface but because it discusses how Microsoft fits into the Web 2.0 world. Dan covers smart clients, Vista, AJAX and the Microsoft Startup Zone. Visit MSDN's User Interface Design & Development website to see how Microsoft approaches the user experience of its own products.
