It’s disappointing to see Microsoft enter the small business accounting space. Their doing so has the potential to harm small business software developers who are serving their user community well.

While the press will focus on the battle between Microsoft and Intuit (makers of Quicken and QuickBooks) and MYOB (when Microsoft releases Australian accounting software), it is the Microsoft push against small software companies where sigficiant damage will be done.

There are thousands of small software companies serving clients well and providing quality software for fair pricing who will suffer at the hands of the goliath Microsoft.
