"Microsoft," writes Fabrice Taylor of The Globe and Mail, "is well on its way to obsolescence. Nothing can be done. It'll take a long time, decades, but this $200-billion (U.S.) company is finished". The reason, he explains, is that "Microsoft has rarely invented anything that mattered. It didn't invent the operating system. It didn't invent the graphical user interface. It didn't invent the spreadsheet or the word processor or the Web browser. It has, in short, invented nothing -- or at least nothing of consequence".
