The CEO of Slack says that Microsoft is 'unhealthily preoccupied' with 'killing' the company because it threatens email (WORK, MSFT)

Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield told The Verge that Microsoft is "unhealthily preoccupied" with "killing" Slack via its Microsoft Teams tool.  He says that while Microsoft itself often compares itself to Slack, Teams is more of a direct competitor to the likes of Zoom, thanks to its focus on voice and video calling. In his view, Microsoft focuses on Slack as a rival because it poses a threat to email, which would in turn diminish the appeal of the Microsoft Office 365 cloud productivity suite.  ...

The pair spent kicked the 48 hour livestream off standing a CDC-approved social distance from one another behind a large desk, trading silly banter and dad jokes. That last bit, at least carries a sense of normality amidst these extraordinary times. Awkward banter and goofy jo...
