PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless It's hard to predict the future because we humans prefer to think in terms of familiar paradigms. Even the most brilliant of our species are subject to this flaw. Now, Microsoft faces its turn. The owner of the operating system that likely runs your personal computer, the company that achieved monopoly with Windows and ducked the Department of Justice's scythe to keep it, faces a midlife crisis as the world goes gaga over portable consumer devices. This is the story of what's happening to Microsoft in the handheld operating system markets -- and how it parallels the earlier, similar journeys of IBM Corporation and Digital Equipment Corporation. Can Microsoft achieve dominance on mobile devices?

There is not any market were MS is not under pressure by someone. This pressure is going to keep on increasing from now on.

There will be no more simple ride. EU basically forbids lot of MS hidden protocol stunts. Stating the old status quo will more often than not make a fool out of you. Please do as a favor before commenting be upto date.
