The Winner Takes All


An article from CNET makes some interesting observations and is titled Microsoft’s nightmare inches closer to reality. From the article:

The nightmare is inching closer to reality and Microsoft execs are apparently paying attention to the decade-old alert. As part of a management shuffle, Microsoft said Tuesday it would make hosted services a more strategic part of the company and fold its MSN Web portal business into its platform product development group, where Windows is developed.

Another memo, called ‘Google–The Winner Takes All (And Not Just Search),’ is also making the rounds. This internal memo, written in 2005, argues that Google threatens Microsoft and the company’s crown jewel, Windows.

Rumours continue to circulate that Google, whose tight relationship with Linux is no longer a secret, may be ‘cooking’ an operating system. Some recent hirings of user interface experts, notable Dr. Kai-Fu Lee, only support this crazy speculation.
