The reason Silicon Valley hates Zynga is simple: At a time when tech founders are hell-bent on proving that they are tackling big problems, Zynga fully encapsulated the most common criticisms of the tech sector — that it’s focused on small, silly innovations; that its companies are valued at billions of dollars despite selling only virtual time-wasters. It’s a company that had a $7 billion IPO and grew at an astounding rate despite selling nothing more real or tangible than purple cows and FarmVille tractors.

Microsoft does have an advantage over Amazon and Google: Many enterprises use its software to run clouds in their own data centers, which is called “private cloud.” If Microsoft can get these customers using its cloud services, too, that could eat into Amazon’s lead and make it more difficult for Google to get into the game.
