With a new platform-neutral Microsoft, why go Windows? | ZDNet

Excerpt from a timely Microsoft platform reality check

"Microsoft's new Sway app is coming to iOS before Windows or Windows Phone. The Revovle contact-calendar mash-up app the company showed off in very early preview form will debut on iPhone. Office on iPad and Office on Android beat to market the touch-first Office suite, known by some as Gemini, by months (or in iPad's case, more than a year).

It's almost as if Microsoft — which has a history of overcorrecting when it makes a wrong turn (see making Windows Phone a consumer platform without enterprise support for years, for just one example) — is so intent on proving it's not the Windows company any more that it's leaving Windows users out to dry."
