The cloud will absorb Windows (and the rest)
OCTOBER 21, 2016
InfoWorld's Eric Knorr has made the compelling point that perhaps Microsoft should get out of the Windows business and instead focus on the public cloud. I get that opinion. In the 1990s, I reviewed client operating systems that included Windows 95, Windows NT, OS/2, and about a dozen versions of Unix. In the back of my mind, I thought that was a fool's errand, that we were focused on the wrong problem.
