Steve Ballmer’s dilemma

Tech writer Bob Cringely:

What Steve Ballmer and Microsoft need to do is clean up their act, quietly trim expenses, maybe even sell a few product lines, and start to seriously stash away cash toward the post-Windows, post-Office world of 2018.

Yes, post-Office. What else can be meant by bundling Office with Windows RT than its value is headed to zero?
If Microsoft can continue to pretend it is big while actually becoming small, they might end up in 2018 with a small residual product line sitting atop $100 billion in cash.
