John Gruber:

“A computer on every desk and in every home” was incredible foresight for 1977. It carried Microsoft for 25 years of growth. But once that goal was achieved, I don’t think they knew where to go. They were like the dog that caught the car.

Interesting analysis of how Microsoft became the largest IT company in the world, and of how it got dethroned. Gruber offers a suggestion on what Microsoft should do to remain a strong contender in the future. Considering who Microsoft appointed CEO of the company, I think they share his view.
