The heading of the prediction was
Microsoft Online: Bing, IE Gain Respectability
I'll grant that the text below it seems to imagine that a wide adoption of windows 8 and IE10 would push more bing into the users' hearts and minds.
But then scroll back to the first prediction - if it's a prediction - I'd call it fact already - that Windows 8 is a (mild) flop.
I'd venture 8 is worse than Vista in getting adopted in businesses.
For IE to gain *any* respect, MSFT will have to fix those still on XP and get them to stop using the crap they forced upon us in the past. Artificially linking the browser versions with the OS versions isn't going to get them any love - nor respect.
Anyway: to me MSFT is already obsolete if it were not for the wide adoption of office. Just need to find a way the wane the business world from that -expensive- package.
