Microsoft Incompatible with Microsoft

Uncategorized Add comments

The link http://support.microsoft.com/kb/912265 shows how to make a microsoft product work with a microsoft product. In this case, it’s a Microsoft Exchange server sharing a calendar to a Microsoft Outlook or a Microsoft Entourage user. I thought these products should already work together, given that they are Mail Server and Mail Client.

It’s very difficult to maintain any sort of compatibility with another company, even when there is relatively tight communication.

It’s even difficult to maintain compatibility when there’s no sharing, communication, or agreement. It’s very much like hammering changes with set of tests, and looking for leakage.

It’s much more difficult when the two entities are competing providers.

When the compatibility issue is within the same company, within iterations of the same product, there’s no excuse.
