Microsoft is reeling a bit. Can other smaller developers take advantage?
For the first time in years, Microsoft seems vulnerable.
The technology recession, strategic miscalculations and general wariness following the Justice Department’s four-year antitrust case have resulted in a psychological shift against Microsoft throughout the industry. Rivals and customers are sensing opportunities to challenge the software empire after decades of presumed invincibility.
I really hope this is the case. There really does need to be more competition in the industry for the best software to be made available to the general public.
