A Faint Hope For Microsoft!

Posted: 1 May, 2014 in Comment, Computer, Microsoft

With the passing of Steve Balmer from Microsoft it seams that it is changing for the better with more realistic view of their position within the computer industry, unlike the large majority of it’s less enlightened supporters who still live in the dark ages of Microsoft.

It helps that Microsoft have put a software engineer not a businessman back at the helm of their company as yes corporations have to make money but it is way they make money which can cause a lot of problems for their customers and the way Microsoft was run under Steve Balmer was definitely bad for Microsoft customers!

There is a faint hope that now post Steve Balmer Microsoft will treat it users and products with more respect rather than treating them as cash cows to get the money out of them ignore them once they have their money as in the past!

So far from what I have seen little has changed there though to be fair it is early days as far as change within Microsoft but there is already signs of change the way Microsoft sells it’s products in so much as long last they have finally realised they as company do not live in glorious isolation or totally dominate the computer market any more.

The fact now Microsoft have finally had to admit that Open Source software and tablets exist does look as if finally they are going in the right direction again. All helped by the quick appearance of Office 365 on Apple’s iPad and talk by Microsoft of Android come Linux versions of Office 365 which will be a god send for Microsoft as if they continued in their old direction would of put their future survival in question.

It really looks like Microsoft could of turned a corner and finally back on course of going back to the company which leads the computer industry with new ideas rather than a joke it had become under Steve Balmer within the computer industry itself. But it is still early days for Microsoft and much like many modern companies they can quickly fall back into their old ways in pursuit of profit regardless.

What I find even more comical are those outside of Microsoft who blindly follow Microsoft who claim changes in Microsoft was already happening under Steve Balmer as it really shows an almost criminal naivety about way modern companies work.

Add to this they keep harking on about the good Microsoft did, conveniently forgetting the damage and heart ache Microsoft have caused it customers over the same time which far outweigh any good stuff they have done. But as always the people in question tend to be outside of the Information Technology industry itself and frankly ignorant about those who use computers for real work not playing with computers!

So the biggest question is just why do Windows Users accept the situation as they would not if they had constant problems with their cars or other electrical equipment!
