Microsoft homepage

This looks like a really old post (I mean, it's from 2006 for goodness sake). Stay for the retro vibes but be aware any information in this post is likely way out of date.

Microsoft have recently updated their homepage (they’re moving the whole site to Sharepoint as part of the change). It is now a fully css-based page, albeit with an HTML 4.0 Transitional doctype.

Additionally some of the code is a little disappointing, for example instead of using heading elements they have employed classes:

<div class="heading">Popular Downloads</div>

Now, I’m guessing the Sharepoint might have something to do with this, in which case it isn’t a great advert for it.

On the plus side, I do like the design as it seems more task-oriented such as the New PC section in the Home User area, though this is let down by the slow response of the navigation, it just doesn’t feel right.
