Does Microsoft Still Matter? 2013 Will Decide [readwrite.com]
2013 will be a make-or-break year for Microsoft. Not so much from a financial standpoint, but for how the company is perceived.
Traditionally, Microsoft has built itself around the PC, anchoring itself by its core operating systems: Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 and now Windows 8. But in the last few years, Microsoft's Server and Tools division has generated the highest revenue and profits in the company, followed by the traditional pillars of the company, Windows and Business Tools, or Office.
How will Microsoft fare in 2013? Financially and overall, just fine. But be on the lookout for softness in the company's traditional businesses as Microsoft evolves into a services company.
Everything on windows and windows itself blew up in those days every time you moved a mouse or pressed a key. But I guess you know that ...
you cannot restrict competitors in a market you monopollize.
Microsoft needs replacements. All the guys who led all the teams imo are behind the times
For all the IE bashers, I just have to say, IE10 loads pages wicked fast...
...IE got its act together so late in the game...
Google is the Linux crowd.
Loading pages fast does you no good when you load them wrong or can't load them at all. So many times people point to a site or pages and declare IE is as good as any other browser but that's like saying a Yugo is as good as every other car because it gets you from point A to point B while ignoring everything else.
IE10 is a Yugo. Technically inept. Incapable of using current, standard technology available in any other browser. It's the worst on the planet.
