Usually John Dvorak is telling us that Apple is going to switch to Windows
(honest! Just you wait and see) but now he turns his sights on Microsoft. He argues that Microsoft is, simply put, boring
and he is right (shocker!). Dvorak says that Microsoft will continue to make lots of money, but nothing that they are
working it is very innovative (at least nothing that isn't in Microsoft Research Labs).
I have to agree with
him, Microsoft is past the point when it can take chances with its OS. Too many businesses and users depend on it, so
gone is the opportunity to try something new and exciting. You won't see Microsoft completely changing their OS
architecture like Apple did because they simply can't.
It almost makes me feel sad for the folks in Redmond.
