I don't think that's strictly true. MS was bashing away at Palm for years, without making much headway. The rot set in when the Palm user base became obsessed with the lack of multitasking in PalmOS. Coupled with some stunningly bad product releases and bad management, the company eventually fell from grace.
MS won by default because there was nowhere else to go, and I think that's proven by the near collapse of Winmob in the consumer space at the hands of a device which, oddly enough, lacks multitasking.
Yeah and Palm pretty much saved themselves with webOS.
