This is an interesting perspective from a Microsoft expert who is pretty much a legend.

Ozzie said the fate of Windows 8 would determine Microsoft’s future. The latest version of the company’s operating system will work on tablets powered by low-power ARM Holdings chips, which Microsoft hopes will allow it to rival Apple’s iPad, and put the company back at the cutting edge of consumer technology.

“If Windows 8 shifts in a form that people really want to buy the product, the company will have a great future,” said Ozzie. “In any industry, if people look at their own needs, and look at the products and say, ‘I understand why I had it then, and I want something different’, they will not have as good a future. It’s too soon to tell.”
