Is Windows 8 to Microsoft like OS/2 was to IBM?

Microsoft has done some of its best work for a decade in the last 18 months – new Windows, new smartphone, tablets, new Office, new XBox – and that still isn’t enough to keep the company relevant. It is already looking like an underdog. I don’t think matters will improve until there’s a leadership change.

One thought on “Is Windows 8 to Microsoft like OS/2 was to IBM?

  1. I wouldn’t say they missed the smartphone market, they were essentially there with Windows Mobile 6.5, but they missed the UX train and stayed at Windowsville so to speak.

    I think what is happening is something that is inevitable of a sizeable company; they aren’t ‘agile’ (lol). They have become too much to too many and anything they do will alienate a sector unless it’s just the same as the previous but better.
