I usually read Jack's articles because they are generally useful. But when it comes to microsoft Jack usually has a one track mind. I get it, Jack hates microsoft and has the right to use His column to vent. but honestly, it gets old very quickly.
All empires fall and MS will not be the exception, either by their own hand (due to repeated mistakes) or by the rise of something else, lets say linux. Who's to say that once there is enough money around linux it will not fell prey to the same temptations MS has?? by "linux" I refer to the software itself but also to the people that has a vested interest in it. once there is enough money on the table, the game will necessarily change. it may or may not be for good.
