Microsoft Financial analyst Charles Sizemore predicts that over time, a persistent Microsoft will come to not only thrive but dominate in the mobile computing space, because Apple has no "moats" to prevent customer attrition and its insistence at heavily controlling the ecosystem will drive customers away, while Google's offerings are too "shoddy." It's a bold prediction, but I suppose betting on Microsoft to be persistent and build on its strengths is a safe bet. But will persistence and flexibility be enough?

Microsoft does have a very good overall track record... (DOS, GUI, office suites, gaming consoles - all were a new thing for MS, and in all of them MS came to dominate and/or have the biggest momentum)

And about Webkit... http://blog.chromium.org/2010/03/does-your-browser-behave.html (you'd think this means that Opera was, back then, the most pleasant browser to use with Google services? ...but no, they of course worked much better in Chrome; in fact, Opera works quite badly in them)
