Eric Knorr of Infoworld published an article in which he claims that Microsoft, moving its focus to the cloud, does not need Windows any longer. Apart of trying to portray Microsoft as an open company (which it clearly is not), that idea makes me think of several interesting questions:
1. If Microsoft does not need Windows anymore, why is it pushing Windows 10 so aggressively and in many cases using deceitful means?
2. If Microsoft does not need Windows anymore, then users don't, either. That's some happy news! :D Users should ditch that platform that its producer does not need nowadays.
3. If Windows is about 10 percent of Microsoft's revenue, there must be something hidden behind the aggressive Windows 10 push. Microsoft wants something worth much more than that 10 percent. What could that be? :P
4. Why would someone want to paint Microsoft as an open company that does not need its flagship product?
5. If Microsoft does not need Windows any longer, does that mean that this time it will actually produce something innovative instead of simply buying popular software?
I guess the problem with Surface Pro 3 and the market share decrease of Windows 10 last month might be related to this idea of painting Microsoft as a problem-free company.
