Proxy Wars

The world has witnessed two world wars and a cold war. All of them are very interesting to read. While reading about the cold war which was between two super powers Soviet Union and USA, I could not fail to notice that there were many proxy wars. In Afghanistan or in Vietnam etc. North Korea had tremendous support from both China and Soviet Union to fight against South (U.S) Korea. Neither China nor Soviet Union was directly involved in the war. Same thing happened in Vietnam, where Russia was not directly involved to fight the war against South Vietnam supported by US.  These were the clear consequences of desires of dominating the world. The desire was justified as both of them were having nuclear weapons and both of them were super powers.

Proxy wars are not yet history. They are still fought amongst the super powers. And today, super powers are Microsoft and Google. Both are a bit concerned and worried about their online dominance. There may be no weapons, no MIGs, no nuclear weapons but they have a weapon called antitrust. And Microsoft is using it extensively against Google. Many small firms are filing antitrust law suits against Google. Nothing is proved yet, but such things can not be proved. It is better to assume and act on it. Such small complaints may or may not harm the brand of Google which flaunts a very clean image. But in the end, its a bloody corporate battlefield, even if you lose, you can not blame others for that. You are responsible for your failure.

It will be very interesting to see how Google responds to the proxy war (assumed to be) initiated and funded by the super power called Microsoft. Microsoft is not really involved directly in this mess, but everyone can smell what they are cooking! With Google ‘buzz’ing and Microsoft launching their ‘ultimate’ products, it is really difficult to say who will win. Both are having their share of success and failures.

So Google Microsoft on your Microsoft and find out more about it 😛
