MS strategic plan to be like Apple

in General Discussion edited January 2014
Seems like Gates is opening up a bit that MS has been executing a plan to be the OS and hardware maker just like a certain company we all love. Interesting. MS eating its children/partners again. Shock.

    MS's plan since day one was to be like Apple.

    I agree-- but this is an open admission to the rest of the MS-sphere players that they intend on competing directly with hardware. It's not just Xbox gaming, it's computing. It's part 2 of the PlaysForSureButNotAllTheTime scheme. How much you want to bet there's a Windows version for PPC chips that's ready to go?

    If MS's partners would wise up, I'd expect them to some up with alternative software and format "standards" pretty quick-- or they're going to be awoken one day to MS releasing Fratricide®, the friendly new Office app.
