this isn't actually true. microsoft research has done some pretty
innovative stuff. the original NT kernel group headed by dave cutler
(who used to work at dec and basically bought a decent chunk of the
VMS team with him) did some quite creative things with kernel design.
and even the justifiably maligned IE did bring a few features to web
browsers that are now standard. even though CORBA attempted to do
"object management" before MS, its design never really took off,
whereas MS's "DOM" model has been quite successful when viewed through
certain lenses.

what is true is that microsoft innovations rarely spread outside of
microsoft. not never, just rarely.
