MisterDTV – I just thought I would let the idea brew for a bit. I am not certain that Microsoft does not already have a new ‘game plan’ (Windows 8 just the beginning?)
Napier & Son was the most successful British manufacturer of aircraft engines in the 1920s and 30s with their 12-cylinder Napier Lion powering 163 different types of aircraft between 1918 and 1935. Over that 17 year period the Lion grew from 450 to 1350 horsepower and was, for awhile, the most powerful aircraft, boat and car engine in the world, holding world speed records in all three venues at the same time. And then the Napier Lion was suddenly gone — a lesson from which Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer could benefit if he and his company don’t repeat it.
via Windows is doomed.
