BYOD, (Bring Your Own Device) means an end to M$’s bulk licences to businesses and the small cheap computers run */Linux or iOS so there’s just no need for M$.
Benioff reported that in a conversation with a global CIO, “Her goal is to get rid of all of the PCs”
That makes some sense. It sure would relieve M$ of a lot of income, perhaps most of it, and businesses of a lot of expense for IT, perhaps most of it if they use cloudy stuff. FLOSS will be a part of the mix because the world can make its own software independently of M$. It’s the right way to do IT.
Imagine a world without M$ telling us how to do IT. We could network as large as we wanted without worrying about their petty EULA. We could sleep late on “Patch Tuesday”. Malware writers might have to take on legitimate work. Imagine retail spaces where consumers actually have a choice of OS. I like it.
