Submission + - Microsoft is a dying consumer brand->

Taxman415a writes: Apparently CNN has noticed what most slashdotters have and have summarized it in an article. The article summarizes the less than stellar performance of, and problems in, nearly every consumer division. It cites StatCounter's data showing IE's market share falling below 50%, and is even smart enough to note that's just one statistic with various problems, though the trend is clear. It also seems that MS doesn't want to compete with Android, so it plans to charge royalty fees to handset makers to discourage them from using it in their products. The conclusion is that MS will just be a commercial, not consumer company. Overall, I'm ok if MS still mints money in those segments if it means that they have to compete on product quality
