About Microsoft's future

Interesting thoughts from Cringely about a possible future of Microsoft. But I have to disagree at least in one point: Xbox is probably the most important product Microsoft has in their portfolio. With Xbox they are way ahead of their competition in the home entertainment and content providing industry. If only one Microsoft product remained in our homes in 5 years time Xbox would be that one.

No decision is a decision

An OS with two completely different user interfaces is a no decision.
Three OSs pretending there is only one is a no decision.
Three web frameworks and saying "just mix them" is a no decision.
A tablet with a keyboard and touchpad is a no decision.

No decision is also a decision. Usually a bad one.
