It is all a matter of perspective.
Microsoft will continue to be a large presence in the corporate market,
unfortunately for us Linux folks.
However, I think the key to the article is these two words: "consumer brand"
Consumers are less interested in buying Microsoft things. They want cool
gadgets. The "consumer" is fickle and always looking for the next new thing.
Microsoft is now pretty much embedded in big businesses. They have some consumer
things, but overall are pretty lacking in this area.
Overall I think Linux has always been in a similar boat. Linux (RH, Suse,
CentOS, UBUNTU, what have you) by itself is not a "consumer" product. They don't
care about the nuts and bolts.
We are the platform on which cool things run, and these cool things run better
on Open Source than Windows any day.
