Is Microsoft going down the tubes?

A ZDNet column says Microsoft is on the way out: “Today, Microsoft presents users with a
bewildering array of end-user operating system
options: Windows 95, Windows 98 SE, Windows ME,
Windows 2000 Professional and Windows CE. With
so much potential confusion, is it any wonder
that people are beginning to look at other
end-user operating systems? Corel Linux, a
consumer’s Linux, while far from a hit, has
garnered a small following. As the Unix desktop
interface programs KDE and Gnome mature, we can
look forward to seeing even more user-friendly
interfaces appearing on top of Linux, the BSD
OSes and Solaris.”
