    Microsoft Is The New Google, Google Is The Old Microsoft - Forbes

    Looks like Microsoft is doing it the right way.

    All that and Microsoft doesn't need to data mine their customers.

    Forbes is not really a good site. Some of their topics are just bloopers

    Edit: Ive Read the article. It was a bit interesting opinion

    I also read somewhere on my Flipboard, and it said and compared MS with Apple, like MS is just like Apple few years ago and Apple now is like MS few years ago, Apple is a bit stuck etc etc, I'll read your article, thanks!

    My name is xandros9 and I approve this article as it reflects a sentiment I've held for a bit.
    I kinda hoped it would point out the increasingly closed-source and proprietary nature of its products it once trumpeted (and perhaps still does) as open.

    Great read. Thanks. Quite a few articles linked within the article were good as well. Interesting stuff.

    I really agree with the switch idea the article presented. Personal perspective, I couldn't be happier and more satisfied as an MS product user, both hardware and software, given the open attitude Satya has towards changing the once locked and "take it or leave it" approach MS had.

    Very interesting read...

    I do believe that MS have a long-term strategy, and hopefully we'll start to see some tactical advantages soon...
    But I do believe that Google's Android is fragmenting from the inside, so hopefully in the next 2-3 years Android's numbers will decline, and hopefully new users give the platform a chance...
