5 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

CTRL+ALT+COMPETE is a feature-length documentary that takes a revealing look at the startup and emerging business scene through the eyes of five founders and their teams some are Tim O'Reilly and Felicia Day. Outstanding Documentary and telling story from visionaries going from nothing to a dominating force. Some say too dominating. Microsoft has helped many individuals reach their goals by supplying capital into their visions, this documentary goes into the facts and reasoning behind it all including my favorite, the XBOX team. Fun and interesting movie, it is a documentary so if not into that type of movie look else ware.
