Microsoft listens to customers?

Filed under: — 1:21 am

Microsoft has been causing controversy lately with the smart tags feature of the upcoming Windows XP and IE 6, which would essentially allow Microsoft to add its own links to anyone’s Web page. Now they’ve backed down: the feature won’t be included, and the Wall Street Journal reports that this decision was actually a response to negative feedback from users. Is it me, or is this a new behavior for Microsoft? A step back from their we-know-what’s-best-for-you attitude? Perhaps there’s hope that they’ll listen to our feedback about things like Product Activation.

Or maybe I’m just in a rare optimistic mood today.
