Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer released a letter to shareholders yesterday that discussed how the company sees itself now and how it might evolve. In particular, he focused on the versatility of Windows 8, and the ways Microsoft is responding to the consumerization trend. He also hints at getting more involved in hardware production, which some suggest signals a shift to an Apple-like future.
What do you think of the "new era" at Microsoft? Will the company's new strategies work, or is its time waning? Curious to know where you stand.
