I enjoy reading Patrick Rhone’s minimal mac blog (that is, when it’s actually up and running since it’s based on Tumblr…). Sometimes he has really insightful articles, like this one about where exactly Microsoft made its biggest mistake.
I would highly suggest you read the entire post to see how spot-on it really is. I probably shouldn’t ruin it for you, but it’s just too good not to quote the final summation:
Microsoft’s biggest miss was allowing the world to finally see the truth behind the big lie — they were not needed to get real work done. Or anything done, really.
And that will be what ultimately kills them.
