Paul Thurrot has written an interesting article that talks about what would happen if Windows 8 was substantially less than a commcercial success.

According to him, the effect on Microsoft as a company would be potentially devastating.

It’s a must read and you can see it here.

My take – Microsoft has a lot to lose if Windows 8 is not a runaway success but I don’t think that it would be devastating. The company would just stumble along and eventually get it right in the future. Not like they don’t have the money and resources to recover.

Yes it would be a blow but I don’t see it as the beginning of the end for the company.

What do you guys think?
