It shows the systematic problem Microsoft has. They owned the marketshare for browsers, and instead of making sure it was compatible with the majority of sites and keeping it at the top level of browsers they let it become vulnerable to competitors.
Same thing is happening to Windows. (Windows 8 not accepted like Windows 7)
Same thing happening to giving developers the best tools. (Java/Typescript, C++ again, versus Silverlight,C#, WPF)
They need to get back to what they are good at and what they were leaders at. Stop following competitors for 2014 and let them follow you. That's my wish for 2014 for good ole MS.
