About 3 years ago, I had said that Microsoft would not matter anymore in 5-10 years. Not saying they would be out of business. I meant programs would be written where MS would not be the goto company as to how things would work. Since then, Paul Graham and Wired both wrote articles saying the same thing. (I'm a genius!)

With the decline of Internet Explorer and all the "cloud computing" talk, along with the rise of Google, and even Amazon and others in this area, I stand by that statement. I do believe Unix and its variants will still be standing in 2038 but, of course, with all the improvements one would expect. It will be the machine that keeps on ticking and the preferred platform for all things.
