What Microsoft is really good at is endlessly iterating and revving - incrementally improving things that already exist - and those things that already exist are generally acquired from the outside.

微软真正擅长的是无休止的迭代和加速——不断改进已经存在的东西——而那些已经存在的东西通常是从外部获得的。

Reducing a product's definition to a list of features and functions ignores the real opportunity - orchestrating technological capability to serve human needs and goals.

把一个产品的定义简化为一系列的特性和功能忽略了真正的机会——协调技术能力来满足人类的需求和目标。

A lot of people think, and Microsoft is happy to let them think, that all great things are invented by Microsoft. In fact, very, very little has been invented by Microsoft.

很多人认为,所有伟大的东西都是由微软发明的,微软很乐意让他们这么想。事实上,微软几乎没有发明什么。

We're building what I call 'software apartheid.' We're in the process of creating a divided society: those who can use technology on one side, and those who can't on the other. And it happens to divide neatly along economic lines.

我们正在建立一个我称之为“软件种族隔离”的社会,我们正在创造一个分裂的社会:一边是那些能使用技术的人,另一边是那些不能使用技术的人。它恰好沿着经济路线整齐地划分。

I think the phrase 'computer-literate' is an evil phrase. You don't have to be 'automobile-literate' to get along in this world. You don't have to be 'telephone-literate.' Why should you have to be 'computer-literate'?

我认为“懂电脑”这个词是个恶语。在这个世界上,你不必“精通汽车”就能相处。你不必“通晓电话”,为什么一定要“通晓电脑”?

Design is not so much a design issue as a power struggle.

与其说设计是一个设计问题,不如说是一场权力斗争。
