Their EEE is getting back at them. They've killed the whole industry and now they have nothing to extend.
Back in the days, there was several other great OSes (AmigaOS was the best). They could copy from them and extinguish them. 95 was a hit because it finally got multitasking like the AmigaOS had for a decade. Nowadays, they can't copy much. They've killed all competition. They can't copy from the Free Software world because their business model is too far away to adapt to something like that. They just have Apple to copy, but Apple doesn't have much inovation to offer. 3D desktop, pretty windows and that's all there is.
