I don’t own a smart phone, don’t want to talk on my computer ... But I don’t buy them other people do.
Yes, but I remember when the same was said about the PC. It’s too small, the processor is way too tiny, the processor couldn’t do anything blah blah blah ... it’s not good for nothing real computers do ... and then times changed.
Who needs quad core when one core is hardly ever maxed out. Times change. Nowadays most computers do not take advantage of the power they have.
So long old friend but your days are numbered as the mass market darling you once were. But if I wanted an OS, why would I buy one? Most of the MS sales are from the Lappy market where windows comes preloaded. There is a reason investors are thinking MS is a has been stock — As the ‘pads’ take over.
I don’t even know what you’re responding to there. Nothing I said.
There’s OSes on the smart phones. That’s been my point, which you keep studiously ignoring, all along. Even if all of your predictions about smart phones come true (which they won’t) there will still be OSes. The iPhone OS, the Android OS, the Palm OS. The OS as a concept will never go away, it’s a necessary piece of code in every single complex computerized device.
And investors fleeing from MS are morons. Their sales keep growing. 1.1 billion customers and MORE coming. Even if the pads are taking over (which they aren’t, nobody is actually ditching their computers for pads) it’s still going to be at least 6 years at current adoption rate for their to be as many pads out there as Windows computers right now.
