MSN Competing With Microsoft?

Is MSN competing with parent Microsoft, on the browser and music front…Yusuf Mehdi never says it…Guardian conjures it up….

Mehdi: “We want to really drive Windows as a great place to manage digital media, and by developing a best-in-class music service, we can show people how great it is on Windows – better than any other ecosystem. You might say, ‘Hey, you can let partners do that,’ but my view is that the market is very nascent, and if we can all grow the market, we’ll all benefit. The real competition is not each other but the move to free and pirated music, and we are a company that believes in intellectual property.”
