I think the author was just trying to give both sides of the story. I agree that part 2 had more of an MS slant, but you could have guessed that from the titles:
Part 1: The assault on software giant Microsoft
Part 2: How Microsoft plans to beat its rivals
And I think MS might just have a chance of winning if they take the consumer electronics market. Not because their technology is good, but if they can force it into every device we own and make us dependent on Windows, it would be pretty hard to shake them loose.
Now, I don't think that will happen, but that is MS's current strategy.
