Our current "jobless recovery," economists say, is occurring partly because corporations actually are gaining benefit from the technology they have bought over the years. Microsoft, being no small part of that, might be making an inadvertent but important contribution. I believe that long-term improvements of Microsoft's key system components -- Windows 2000/2003, Internet Information Server 5/6 and Exchange 2000/2003 -- made for a soft landing for companies that found themselves short-handed in the IT department.
Microsoft has very little to do with the "jobless recovery." If you look at the help wanted ads you will notice there are plenty of jobs for Microsoft-type IT professionals. However,
the country of India is very much the main catalyst to the jobless recovery, followed by Eastern Europe and China.
