So Microsoft will be starting to produce Linux software. This would never have happened under the previous CEO. With this change, Microsoft’s addressable market just grew fairly significantly for this product.
Of course, there are ways for them to mess this up. Such as if they have features only available under windows.
That would rather permanently consign this product to the dustbin of history.
This said, I am hopeful that this CEO gets it, and will make sure that the changes Microsoft needs to make, are, in fact, made.
I guess we will see by their actions. But to change the game even more, I could see them buying someone like Canonical or Red Hat. That would almost force IBM to buy the other.
