Farewell then, Slack: The grown-ups have arrived

Yeah...

I think the author of this piece is missing the context here. Microsoft constantly makes knockoffs of popular products to try and steal their market. It rarely works. This is another Zune, another Groove Music, another Windows Phone. I don't think Teams is any more likely to kill off Slack than it is to go nowhere and disappear in a year or two. The main issue Microsoft has is that the majority of businesses that want to use Slack, already do. They'd have to have a real break-though product to convince them to switch, and lower cost isn't something most businesses are going to really care about. Slack is not exactly expensive.
