Wow...Who's going to pay $12.95/month for 100 megs space, on a windows server. I wouldn't. I think many people would prefer to pay $3-4/month for linux and cpanel to a host that takes paypal.

I'd only be worried if you were offering Windows Hosting, as Microsoft will never go into Linux I am sure.

LOL If Microsoft offered Linux hosting, that would be SO funny. But, they do need to lower their rates a lot if they plan to get too much business :-\

I don't agree. It's a brand name thing. People think microsoft, think huge, then they think ultimate reliability becuase they're a huge company that EVERYONE knows.

I have to agree that their brand name will carry them. I see them picking up people who don't know anything more than what comes installed with windows. What is the obvious choice for them?

Microsoft has had this service for a long while. If it hasn't affected the market yet, I doubt it will in the future.
