Microsoft and Citrix Gang Up on Cisco

The long-time partners have expanded their partnership to target branch offices of big companies -- which, incidentally, is also a big target of Microsoft’s Dynamics ERP suites.

Gartner has some advice as to how IT people should react. Notice, too, how the Gartner guys congratulate themselves for predicting a Microsoft-Cisco battle back in 1997. Maybe it’s just me, but I’m not sure I’d be so excited about a prediction I made taking 10 years to come true. But, since nobody will remember this little newsletter entry 10 years from now, I’ll come out and say that Google will own at least 50 percent of the OS market by 2016. Take that with a grain of salt -- or maybe a shaker. I’ll be back to brag about it if it comes true, though!

Have any predictions for what the tech world will be like 10 years out? Post 'em or send them to me at [email protected].
