- Working in IT I can tell you we are getting tired of the very poor quality of some of the ancillary applications like UAG and TMG, however Exchange is a shining star and I don't see us moving away from it as I am not aware of a product, cloud or otherwise that comes close. Dumping Ballmer seems like the next logical step, but they have to find someone from outside who has the necesary credibilty and personality for the job and I have bno idea who that might be.Jan 22, 2013

- Vista was annoying, I am now enjoying Linux Mint. No need to even consider win 8 for my desktop. Save my money for an android tablet. :)Jan 22, 2013

- I'm mixed about the future of Windows. Yes, their sales suck right now and I'm not a fan of Windows 8. But there is still a huge group of people that have not transitioned to a smart phone. Windows has been slow getting into the mobile environment. But if they do it right, they still stand a large chance in getting that group slow to transition.
Windows 8 will soon be the only operating system available for most users getting new PCs. And if they can get people accustomed to the changes on it, they won't have to relearn everything if they get a Windows smart phone.
They've shot themselves in the foot, but they still have that advantage of being the only OS for the vast majority of PC users. And if they can get people on board with Windows 8, then they'll have an easier time getting people into Windows phone.Jan 22, 2013
