Disruptive technology guru Clayton Christensen
thinks that Microsoft should refocus its
market toward Linux on handheld devices, according to
this ZDNet article
""Where Linux takes root is in new applications like Web servers and handheld devices. As those get better, applications will get sucked off the desktop onto the Internet, and that's what will undo Microsoft," he said.
The software company can respond to this market disruption by setting up a separate business that will "kill Microsoft," Christensen said. If it doesn't react to the rise of Linux desktops on handheld computers, it will miss a coming wave of new applications and market opportunities, he said.
