      Just read this on ZDNet.

      Ballmer’s decision to turn Microsoft into a devices company might turn out as the second worst decision in the history of information technology topped only by Steve Job’s decision not to follow the advice of Bill Gates and open Mac OS for other computer makers.

      How much loyalty can Microsoft expect now from the PC industry? Isn’t Android for PC makers much more interesting than Windows, considering that it is free and that it can be changed to offer a superior experience compared to that offered by other PC vendors?

      Wouldn’t it have made more sense for Microsoft to strengthen the partnership with PC makers instead of competing with them? How about lowering the license costs of Windows significantly and giving hardware vendors more options to adapt the UI?
