What has the IBM Power 7 launch got to do with Smarter Collaboration?
Primarily on TCO, Total Cost of Ownership...
For example, Lotus Domino on POWER7 consumes 4.9 times less processing resource per task than Microsoft Exchange on Nehalem. So what? Well Lotus Domino can support more users at 40% less cost!
WebSphere Application Server on POWER7 can give around 4x the transaction throughput of .Net on same number of Nehalem cores.
Imagine the productivity and cost benefits to 100s of millions of Lotus collaboration software users...
Imagine the boost to 10s of millions of Domino applications in use...

"But the much more important question is why Microsoft, America’s most famous and prosperous technology company, no longer brings us the future"...
"No one in his right mind should wish Microsoft failure. And yet it is failing, even as it reports record earnings."
"Microsoft has become a clumsy, uncompetitive innovator. Its products are lampooned, often unfairly but sometimes with good reason."
"Microsoft is no longer considered the cool or cutting-edge place to work. There has been a steady exit of its best and brightest."

This is quite an interesting list -- top 10 security/quality issues Microsoft should address asap -- per eWeek
"The corporate world is unsure just how well it can trust Microsoft's Windows 7. Windows Vista was a nightmare that most companies didn't adopt. Internet Explorer is in the news, thanks to a security breach. And Windows Mobile is still the also-ran in the market..."
"Microsoft's security woes are troublesome. Not only is Windows not nearly as secure as users would like, but Internet Explorer is causing trouble for users as well. "
"A quick glance around many of the markets where Microsoft operates reveals a staggering issue: the competition is innovating far more rapidly than Microsoft. "
"Microsoft's strategies have focused mainly on the short term. The future of software is, at least by most accounts, centered on the Web. And yet, as the most important software company in the industry, Microsoft is lagging behind the Web software innovators. That's a major blunder"

Good writeup on customers trending towards desktop alternatives..
Excerpts from this article:
As of October 2009, about 9% of 1,414 business technology professionals surveyed by InformationWeek Analytics said that their organizations made extensive use of netbooks and 19% predicted they would make extensive use of them by 2011. About 33 million netbooks were shipped worldwide in 2009.
The worldwide thin client market may grow to 7 million units in 2012, from 2.9 million in 2007, according to IDC. Gartner (IT) expects that by 2014, 15% of traditional professional desktop PCs will be replaced by so-called virtual desktops, which also leave most computing and storage tasks to a centrally located computer, rather than maintain them at the employee's workstation.
"For every dollar I spent buying a PC, I spent 50¢ to the dollar every year maintaining it," Kapoor says. "There's a lot of technical expertise that's required to do that maintenance." iQor has eliminated its help desk and, before long, expects to cut its IT staff to about a quarter its previous size.
Short and sweet top 10 list of issues with Windows 7:
To net it out...
1. Too much of a learning curve
2. Upgrade challenged from XP (forget it), from Vista (recent study had 30% of responders having issues)
5. Not value for Enterprise
6. Starter edition a non starter
7. search needs to get better
8. little online integration

Good discussion in Technewsworld on adoption of Linux based Netbooks (32%), the predicted surge in 2010 with ARM based Netbooks which will run ONLY Linux...
'Death of the Desktop'
However, "experience with netbooks will kill off the desktop within a few years," Pogson predicted. "It makes little sense unless you need all those drives, noise, heat, space and burning money. Those who really need power will use a thin client connected to a server cluster."
Looking ahead, "expect GNU/Linux to do just as well on notebooks as it did on netbooks," he added. "2009 was the year of GNU/Linux on the desktop as far as I am concerned. 2010 could well mark the death of the desktop and overweight notebooks."
