Microsoft Steve Ballmer's annual letter to shareholders makes it very clear Microsoft is at a point of no return - and in the middle of a transition into a hardware company. "This is a significant shift, both in what we do and how we see ourselves - as a devices and services company. It impacts how we run the company, how we develop new experiences, and how we take products to market for both consumers and businesses." Line. Sand.

Had big OEMs like HP, Dell, Toshiba, IBM/Lenovo etc spend 0.01% of the money they paid MS over the years on Linux software and application development Linux would be a much better alternative now that they going to need it.

They had no strategic thinking and only thought about selling cheaper shit with more crapware and now Apple and MS are going to make them pay.
