Gut-reaction: oxymoronic.

I would actually really like the phrase "Microsoft Design" to not be an oxymoron. For the purposes of the democratization of great design and the global imporvement of the quality of life that should result, the notion that the world's biggest software company (and most pervasive) could also become a leader in that particular mission is inspiring, but that doesn't seem bloody likely. Still, they're trending upwards lately – the SPOT watch, for example, is something that, if done right, could be insanely cool. It's the "getting it right" part that's nigh impossible.
