Will Microsoft Become the Next IBM?

The symbolize IT company in the last decade is now living in the past. Microsoft is losing more and more its consumers, which shows particularly in the browser market recently.

As one of the most influential IT companies, Microsoft has been the leader of modern technologies like search, gaming, media, and especially the web browsing, a market it once ruled with an iron first. But now, the legend is yesterday.

The problems of Microsoft

How is it possible that Microsoft, an IT giant, which has the smartest minds in the tech world falling behind others? A rundown of Microsoft's major consumer projects finds trouble in almost all of them.

Bing is growing, but substantially all of that growth has come at the expense of its business partner, Yahoo -- not its arch-rival Google. The attempts of building a social network through Windows Live has come to foam with the development of Facebook.
