Why I’d listen to Paul Thurrott over any Linux fanboy
Gates’s departure changes none of this. The company will continue to struggle in new markets against companies such as Google, Nokia, and Sony, just as it has done over the last couple of years. It will continue to sell many of copies of Windows, Office, and Windows Server, as always. If Gates were a true visionary, he would admit to the company’s problems and shake its very foundations, giving its employees, shareholders, and customers a real future. But the truth is, Microsoft is just shuffling executives around. And that won’t cure any of the company’s real problems
One of the best bits of commentary I’ve seen on Bill’s departure till date.
