Microsoft Looking Like An End-Stage Company

Microsoft Looking Like An End-Stage Company

"I believe that Microsoft as we know it may not be around in another decade--maybe not even in five years. There's hardly a single tech industry trend line pointing in Redmond's favor right now, and some of those curves are about to get a lot steeper, real fast.

So it's hardly surprising recent Microsoft-related news has been pretty much on par with where things stand for the company these days — mostly all bad.

It is no secret what my opinion is of Microsoft, the company and their products. But putting that aside, I think that the author here has some very valid points. Microsoft might be the 800 pound gorilla but when things change at light speed that size becomes a handicap. Adapt or die. Microsoft has not been doing well at the former.
