In a gentlemanly and gracious gesture, Apple CEO Tim Cook welcomed Microsoft Office to the iPad today in a tweet.
Opinions about this move by Microsoft are all over the map. Those who don't care for Microsoft see the move as far too late. Those who are neutral to positive are pleased to see Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella taking an aggressive position with a Microsoft enterprise strategy that focuses on a cloud and mobile strategy and the needs of its users on all platforms.
In any case, this tweet by Mr. Cook comes from a position of stregth and confidence by Apple and also reminds us that Mr. Cook is a man with strong personal values. It should be taken at face value.
