Did Dvorak say that? Holy redmond fantasies batman! He's usually pretty spot on
as they say. What's up?

I don't think MS will adapt to changes. Becuase:

1) Billgatus of Borg is (apparently) very arrogant


2) The whole organization (less the programmers and janitors) is built around
corruption. Corruption which has, for the most part, been very successful for them.
I think they are not going to be able to change their mindset without a Stalinist
