I begin my working career in information technology.
I study computer science in 1993, those days Internet just started to roll and Google not even exist yet.
And Microsoft in the 90s is the often regard as rebel and manage to win over IBM.
For past 20 years, Microsoft managed to gain much market share in word process, spreadsheet and powerpoint.
With the steady yearly income of Billions for Microsoft from the sales of Windows and Officer products, it’s took no brainer why Microsoft appear to be lag behind in the tablets and smartphones.
In the reality, Microsoft didn’t really need much innovation or new product. The present product line is a cash cow and the management give top priorities to the both products and nothing else matter.
NYTIMES had an article on the failure of creative in Microsoft.
I guess Microsoft is a dinosaur in the software industry.
