LXer: The 'Walled Garden' Approach Won't Work For Microsoft

Published at LXer:

This doesnít bode well for Nokia, which has gambled itís future on Windows, or Microsoft. Both companies would like us to believe the move was brought about by Redmondís recent announcement there will be no upgrade path from Windows Phone 7 to Windows Phone 8 when itís released in a few months time. The truth seems to be that consumers simply arenít interested in portable Windows devices, despite the gee-whiz advertising thatís been showing up on network TV recently.With the exception of the Xbox, the luster seems to have worn off all Microsoftís consumer products, including its flagship operating system. Here at FOSS Force, only 35% of our visitors are running Windows, which isnít necessarily surprising as weíre an open source site. However, on another site we publish that doesnít attract tech savvy visitors, Windows only accounts for 62% of our visitors, down from 91% only three years ago.
