Re: it doesn't alter the market dynamics that nobody wants WP
MSFT missed the boat on mobile. It thought it could wait, come in, and then use its monopoly power to push though its product line. It's found out it can't.
MSFT missed the explosion of the internet and Google ate its lunch. Bing is irrelevant.
MSFT missed smartphones and first Apple ate its lunch, then Google knocked Apple off the table as has been eating ever since. WP is irrelevant.
MSFT missed tablets, Apple ate its lunch, and Apple's still eating. It's even eating MSFT's core: desktop users. Macs and Macbooks are more popular than ever.
MSFT is contracting. It is no longer the mighty monopolist that it once was. Its star has burned. It burned brightly, mind you, but it's now burning out. Consumers are switching to mobile and businesses are now fragmenting into two camps: those that are 'a MSFT shop' and those that only have Windows on the desktop. Even the latter is expected to evolve as the need for desktop Windows declines in large corporates. With MS Office 365 there's little need for a Windows desktop at the office.
RIP MSFT, may you burn in hell.
