Changing Tides – August 2015

Changing Tides – August 2015

Microsoft’s Windows 10 is Microsoft’s “Big Game”

Microsoft and its CEO Satya Nadella have a big challenge ahead. They need consumers to LOVE its new operating system. Anything less will be failure. For some time now, Apple has been on top in terms of sales, global market capitalization and their NPS (net profit promoter) score. And even Tim Cook, who took the reins from business god Steve Jobs, is now considered by the media to be the best CEO in the country.Like it or not, the old top dog Microsoft is now the underdog. And the only way they can regain the position is a big win with Windows 10. And I hope they win. Not because I am a Microsoft or an Apple fan. I’m a fan of competition in a free marketplace. And when the underdog wins, consumers win. We all end up with better products at better prices – the benefits of a free economy and fair competition. It’s the American way.
