    I think the most important of the new product versions they released this year will be Windows Phone 8.  I'm not sure how much impact will have the release of Server 2012, and we all know that companies are not very excited about Windows 8 (yet?), but I think WP8 will be key regarding their mobile aspirations.

    Carlos, do you think the Windows Phone 8 will be able to take on the smartphone giants?

    Not yet, but I do believe it will start gaining some market share in 2013, maybe at a very slow, but steady pace.

    As near as I've been able to determine, their two greatest milestones were their record profits in the first two calendar quarters of 2012. -- Tom
