Old Microsoft Vs. New Microsoft
We know the Microsoft that was on the left. A company that made a royalty on PCs generally made a license on consumer software and sold licenses into IT departments in the enterprise.
The model we're already shifting to was moving to a device business that's still royalty-based but also gross-margin-based, an enterprise service business that's licensing and subscription and a consumer service space that's advertising- and subscription-based.
Where are we? We're on our journey. And, I think our goal today is to point out where we are in some very important examples.
