Today, Microsoft is making some of their biggest announcements ever — if you’re even remotely interested in technology news, you’re going to hear about the launch of Windows Vista and Microsoft Office 2007.

Now dont get me wrong. I used to like Six Apart, but again why use Microsoft Word. The future of companies is small. Small is the new big. I want tools that work for small businesses. Most small business owners I talk to are using Open Office, because its free.

I haven’t fired up Microsoft Word in ages. In fact I don’t know of very many people with a home edition copy of this software. I really want to get excited about MovableType. But the only way that’s going to happen is if they port that to PHP/MySQL for my entertainment. Give away all access for free and make it open source.
I know I’m dreaming. Anil Dash needs to find some new product to evangelize. Because he hasn’t been the most popular SA Evangelist, and he sure isn’t going to pass as Microsoft’s new product evangelist.
