Microsoft Becomes Irrelevant
Unlike Google, Microsoft hasn’t had much luck at all moving out of their core revenue stream, Windows OS/Office. Besides the Xbox 360, almost all of Microsoft’s product launches, like Zune, have flopped.
The company that’s dominated desktop computing seems incapable of breaking out of their comfort zone. Even with glowing reviews, the latest Windows powered mobile devices haven’t seen much love from consumers.
While Microsoft Office is still the standard tool set for office workers across the planet, Google’s more affordable, and accessible, software is finding its way into more workplaces.
The future holds no silver linings for Microsoft.
