You remember seeing this video? It is the interview with Steve Jobs and Bill Gates. [video=youtube;wuhHIqJyjY0]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wuhHIqJyjY0&feature=relmfu[/video] I remember watching this video four years ago, and I could not help but feel sorry for Steve Jobs. The interviewers seem to be "Microsoft Fanbois" and I can already see them doubting Steve Job's vision of the "Post-PC era." For example, at around 5:10 in the video, the interviewer told Steve Jobs that he would be in "trouble" for using the term "Post-PC." He meant it as a joke, but you can see how Microsoft fanboi-like he was in another instance, where he asked Steve Jobs whether or not PC includes only Windows or it also includes Macs. Well look at us now: 1) The PC is definitely dying, although not dead yet (comeback soon?). 2) People have adopted more apple mobile devices than Windows within the last few years 3) Microsoft is now being shunned, hated, and most detrimentally, doubted for their abilities Steve Jobs was right even though he was laughed at and highly doubted. The Post-PC era came, and Apple was ready. Today, I just checked out this news article, Windows 8 Sells 40 Million Licenses in First Month which could be taken as a surprise or not, depending on how you see the situation (low cost of windows 8, holiday season shopping, etc.). You know what I see in this article? I see a vision that Microsoft have. One that is being laughed at across every media. One that people highly doubt due to lack of dominance of Microsoft within the past years - their bleeding stocks, their late-comings, their "viruses", and their "uncoolness." That vision is to unify a platform. 40 millions Windows 8 licenses? That is a win not only for PCs, but for your Surface tablets, Windows 8 tablets, and Windows Phone. Because with a unify platform, if one unit prosper, all other units get additional development. A unify platform to tackle on more features, more troubles, and more viruses? Microsoft is bold like that.
