quote: Microsoft does not have as fragmented a business model as you suggest. Their strategy involves extending the Windows, Xbox Live, and Zune brands across platforms and into the cloud, similar to what Apple (and perhaps even Google) are doing. Microsoft is in a much stronger position, however.Also, Windows is in no way threatened. Mac OS will never extend beyond its niche for trendsters, computing novices, and media production professionals. Linux is for nerds with way too much time on their hands, and will never offer the polish, reliability, functionality, ease of use, and compatibility of Windows. Chrome OS is a niche product for netbooks that offers nothing to the all-important business world.
