The Forecast Calls for Clouds Over Redmond

This is a very interesting read from a former MSFT engineer.

"Meanwhile, Microsoft continues to promise solutions for tomorrow that customers need today......My most memorable moment at Microsoft came during a technical review with Bill Gates. I will never forget the moment when I made an apparently obvious point to him. He responded, “What? Do you think I’m stupid?” Everyone was staring at me, and I felt it best not to answer......But Microsoft’s market share in desktop operating systems, servers, and productivity software can go no higher. Its core businesses face gradual erosion to competitive operating systems such as Linux and OS X. It faces challenges from new approaches like services offered by Google and the growth of dedicated consumer devices that make owning a traditional personal computer less necessary."
