Microsoft is building a Google cluster

From Greg Linden's blog, a quote from Microsoft:

"the people who could build a viable [Web] services infrastructure of scale are companies that have both the will and the capacity to invest staggering amounts of money."

Hmm. I suppose that would exclude Google, BitTorrent and the Web itself. Unless they meant "the people that need to catch up will need staggering amounts of money, otherwise they lose".
