In Depth: Microsoft’s New Journey of Transformation
Bill Gates set a goal when he co-founded Microsoft in 1975 of making possible “a computer on every desk and in every home.” Now that dream has long been achieved, Microsoft is in search of its next mission.
Goal-setting is not easy as the rapid evolution of technology profoundly changes the world often overnight.

Software developers and corporate clients increasingly rely on open-source architecture where Microsoft has no traditional strength.
