“The temporary outlets will be open only during the holiday season, and are not permanent locations like the two-dozen brick-and-mortar Microsoft retail stores already in operation.”
How the mighty are fallen. Unable to get slaves to push enough product, M$ has become homeless, wandering the streets, begging for business.
How many of us would
- do business with transients?
- do business with someone who would not be “there” for a customer?
- go into a strange store when all the usual ones are right where they have been for years?
- buy an untried product in all of the above situations?
Not many? I thought so. This is just the dying dinosaur thrashing around trying to avoid evolution. They and their products can rot as far as I am concerned. The world can and does make its own software, GNU/Linux. There’s no longer any need for M$.
