Why Microsoft is in Trouble

Good read: "Why
Microsoft is in Trouble
" (

Interesting snippet:

While the 30 employees in company
I work for can make a living selling software for a few million $'s per
year, Microsoft can't even look at markets our size. Why? Microsoft is
too big
. The market isn't significant enough to make a dent in their
revenues. In order to grow, Microsoft can only go after huge, massively
profitable markets, and those are becoming fewer and far between. When
appropriately large markets do arise (internet search and services), they
often compete with their desktop products. These markets threaten to
cannibalize their core business, which forces Microsoft into the loosing
defensive position.

(bold mine.)
