Re: Only a Matter of Time
I don’t think their business processes have changed even a bit. It is just that the advent of the iPod, then the iPhone, the cloud, the business around cloud services, the rapid growth of better web services api, The non-sql Database systems, etc. left MS behind and for the first time exposed to the whole world and themselves what a laggard they were in everything.
Plus the fact that the entire software security ecosystem was really fed by MS. It was only after the DoD twisted its arm that MS even decided to look at security.
Even then, MS is still playing catch-up on securing its systems.
If it weren’t for AAPL or Google, we would still be struggling with Palm PC.
On the embedded side they tried to take over with windows embed.
So, no, your brother has a big heart but the machine will do what it always does.
