Bill Gates retires
The most famous man in Software world Bill Gates is retiring next week. In a recent Interview he shared how mistakes of others were key to achieve success in software world. From BBC:
"Most of our competitors were very poorly run," he tells Fiona Bruce, for The Money Programme.
"They did not understand how to bring in people with business
experience and people with engineering experience and put them
together. They did not understand how to go around the world."
Ironically Google applied same tactic against Microsoft and won the battle but then this is common in corporate world.
I don't know what would be the future of Microsoft after Bill Gates, will it get better or keep following same strategy which is leading them to disaster. I personally feel that Microsoft should quit desktop world and seriously jump in Mobile Apps world otherwise their days are numbered.
