Microsoft choose to stay in China: Why not?

1. Just a day after I mentioned that Bing will be seen smiling on Google's exit from the dragon land, Microsoft have released a official statement on this. Brief Extract from http://infotech.indiatimes.com/News-Internet-We_will_stay_in_China_Microsoft/articleshow/5448256.cms reproduced below :

Microsoft Corp has no plans to pull out of China, its chief executive has said, playing down concerns about recent cyber attacks and censorship raised by rival Google Inc.

The company's stance indicates the world's largest software maker is not likely to support its fierce rival in its battle with China and rebuffs broad US political backing for Google.

"There are attacks every day. I don't think there was anything unusual, so I don't understand," Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer told Reuters after a meeting on modernizing government services at the White House.

"We're attacked every day from all parts of the world and I think everybody else is too. We didn't see anything out of the ordinary."
