remember the days where Microsoft made operating systems? I mean, as opposed to today, where MS tred to out-google google, and now, apparently attempts to out-perform apple in the downloadable apps store section of the marketplace.
You've shown, over recent years, with your titanic bungling of hotmail, your extremely ill-advised ploughing of cash into Live! rebranding and search functionality, that at best you're a little schizophrenic at redmond. at worse, with your atrocious support standards for GamesForWindowsLive, and product crossover from Xbox to PC, that you cant even have 2 departments within the same building talk to each other.
Now, for some extremely bizarre reason, you think you're going to offer mobile apps. Good call. Who's buying them, exactly? Blackberry owners who dont need them, or the iPhone owners that dont want them? I guess in the smartphone market that leaves you with Android customers that.... no, wait. they have google office. Um, Nokia owners? maybe they'll download your stuff, right? oh, no, wait. people that use Nokia smartphones as opposed to tiny-office clones dont run seperate apps on the move, because if they did, they'd have a blackberry or an iphone, or just a little 3G wireless dongle.
So whilst, undeniably, theres a killing to be made out there, Exactly who the hell do you think you're going to sell to? Dual-boot for iphones, maybe?
Still waiting for Vista SP3, aka Windows 7,
p.s. coat, because theres no EPIC FAIL icon.
