Microsoft Returns Focus On Windows


In its bid to repair the damage to Vista's image, Microsoft will be restructuring the company by splitting its Platform & Services division into a dedicated Windows & Windows Live division and a separate Online Services division. Besides that, Apple was singled out to be the primary focus of the Windows team noting that both the desktop operating system as well as Windows Mobile provide a choice of hardware but aren't as tightly integrated as Mac OS X or iPhone and thus suffer for it. Microsoft also plans to improve PCs' experiences with cloud computing, or the integration of PCs with Internet platforms, as well as to wage a "long-term battle" in search versus Google.
