The Atlantic is arguing that Microsoft became cool when nobody was looking, what with their raids on criminals and mustachioed websites. Why? Well, because Google and Apple have been getting all of the bad press lately, and Microsoft has already gone through its growing pains. I wouldn’t say that Microsoft is the coolest company around, but they’ve certainly cleaned up their act and put out some excellent products — a sentence I never thought I would write.
