After takin' a swig o' grog, Roy Schestowitz belched out this bit o' wisdom:
> Title is, believe it or not: "Pity poor Microsoft's midlife crisis"
Also note this FUD/boner:
"They had a dream of a computer on every desk and in every home,
every one of them running Microsoft software. Notwithstanding the
meagre desktop influence of Linux, which researcher IDC says has just
1 per cent of the Australian market, or even a resurgent Apple (which
increased its global market share to about 2 per cent in the
wake of the iPod and Mac Mini, but is still a bit player),
Gates and Co mostly realised their vision."
1% for Linux, 2% for Mac?
The article is generally good, though. This is probably the telling
"The company that used to be run by coders, for coders
(Gates/Allchin) is now run by salesmen (Ballmer/Johnson)."
Treat yourself to the devices, applications, and services running on the
GNU/Linux® operating system!
