Apples and Oranges and Sour Grapes

MG Siegler responds to Frank Shaw:

But it’s hard to get riled up about such posts any more. Given Microsoft’s position in the tablet space, this whole thing just reads as sort of sad.

It’s pretty clear that iWork doesn’t have the cachet of Office. It’s also pretty clear that Microsoft is worried about this, judging by their response. I think we’ll know the extent to which Microsoft is worried if they start bundling Office with the Surface Pro (which, by the way, I think they should: it’s the “professional” one, after all).
