Your analogies fail me - New comment on Ba-Da-????
Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "Ba-Da-????":
NOTE to: "If your business model is parasitical you better live with the fact that it might go away."
Sir, every business model with the exception of the invention of "the wheel" is, to put it in your negative terms -- parasitical.
You might better live with THAT fact!
And so, we are all, in effect, to put it more in your terms, "living off the backs of others"; those "others" of course being the "true innovators".
And so, was Micro-Soft being a parasite when it rigged the Xerox OS to become Windows? You bet, oh parasitic wise one, you bet!
The dish of crow awaits you.
(Rigged Xerox? The first Windows was pretty far from Xerox. The legal chain was more Microsoft sued by Apple who was sued by Xerox.)
