    After a total useless venture into Windows Phones, that they marketed for MS fan club and had no appeal to consumers that wanted a good phone. They then went into the tablet market despite the bosses having laughed at the ipad when it was released. Of course they did the tablet the Windows way, so no surprises that Windows RT is about to close for good. Apple realised that there are a few users that like the hybrid but these wont make you money, they sussed that the tablet market needed a dedicated new touch UI that was not handcuffed by legacy non-touch software, so ios was born and Google realising MS were just off on one went with their own touch UI (Android). With MS deciding to reinvent Windows every 3-5 years when Apple showed that just improving it was the way forward has alienated the non Windows fan club and declining sales continue to kick them where it hurts, deservedly so. MS were living off a monopoly and they have proven the adage that this is not good for consumers as they end up with tosh. Finally W10 is coming out of Beta and now they are following the MacOS model there may be some hope, though their business model still sucks. Luckily for those that are being made redundant, they are probably gifted and will find new jobs easily.
