Excerpt from an Om Malik interview
Will Microsoft and Windows survive?
Microsoft doesn’t have the wherewithal to cannibalize itself. They keep doing things which are patchwork. But they do a good job of it. They have a huge market, they have a huge market share. Apple, in contrast, will take an existing product and say, yes, we will destroy it. You know that if iPad keeps growing in popularity, computers become an afterthought. But one can’t laugh at Microsoft. They are a very serious company with a really serious revenue base.
