Re: very scary
Microsoft is proving F. Scott Fitzgerald's line - there are no second acts in American lives. Microsoft has nothing new to offer that anyone wants, and instead forces us to buy useless garbage like Windows 8 instead. Few want Windows 8, and I didn't even want Windows 7. Almost everything I do is on the cloud, and the only reason I bought a Windows 7 machine is that Microsoft refuses to provide updates to XP needed for malware protection.
There is a huge gap in the marketplace now. Apple is too expensive, and Ubuntu isn't supported by most businesses. Sooner or later, someone will step in and plug that gap, and that will be the end of Microsoft. It will be good riddanace.
