M$FT can solve this very quickly
M$FT should simply "give away" W8 licences for *free* in return for XP licences. Whoever owns XP licence key should be given W8 one for free.
Inside a single financial year M$FT will recoup the losses (and make even more profit) by accommodating hundreds of millions of newcomers with Office subscriptions.
Also. Suddenly W8 "Apps" will become a focus of millions of Apps developers.
Also. W8 newcomers will all of a sudden become aware of Windows Mobile devices (which soon will run the same OS)
How simple ?
this is not
how Google works ...
nobody mentions Google here ?
in danger of sounding pompous , let us be clear : 1. NoSQL is very serious, 2: end of big expensive servers is few years away. Everything comes to its end, incuding Oracle and including Dell. Everybody will have a hard time trying to combat GOOG with its wast cloud, and with zero SQL inside and zero classical servers in it.
Problem : Intranet == SharePoint
Hidden gem is (by general consensus) inability of SharePoint to deliver, AND by admition of HP, the greatest MSFT ally that ever was. HP Premise (hidden behind NGIW) is that SharePoint has failed as a platform for quick and easy enterprise apps delivering large ROI. And after spending last several years as an expert on SP, I can only but agree. For me NGIW is an effort to sell an solution to enterprises disillusioned with SharePoint.
