What A Disaster!

Microsoft is warning that open source may force them to lower prices in the future. What a shame that would be.

The days of charging exorbitant prices for software are over – as are the days of taking customers for granted. The advantages of open source are simply too great for Microsoft to deal with. They cannot use their traditional method of buying out the competition because there is no one to buy it from.

It’s clear that in order for Microsoft to continue seeing their profit margins stay at a reasonable level, they’re going to have to embrace Linux. I’ve long predicted we’ll see MS Office for Linux within the next few years as Microsoft needs to buttress sales as their server marketshare dwindles.
