Microsoft isn't going to have a sudden death in the enterprise by any means. Active Directory is still the most robust and 3rd party supported Directory services out there.

As for everything moving to outsourced cloud services... for a lot of companies and government agencies... that's impossible... there is confidential data that can't be put on someone else's storage and services. So while the coud may whittle down IT some, it won't eliminate IT shops in companies altogether. I kind of feel sorry for the Comp Sci graduate these days... getting a job will be tougher than ever, unless you move overseas. Anyway, my point is... the cloud has it's place... but at the same time you can't have critical or confidential data in the cloud.

As for the desktop... Windows 8 won't fly in the enterprise. The last thing the enterprise wants is users accessing an app store, and completely retraining users to use a kludgy interface for the mouse and keyboard. Users are not suddenly going to get windows 8 tablets to do their work. So, for the Enterprise... Windows 8 is a huge mistake... and will be skipped for the most part, like Vista was. As for Tablets, we've already deployed ipads with Mas360 for enterprise control, and we can virtualize apps with Citrix or VMWare... so I don't see our users having a sudden desire for Windows 8 tablets.

Anyway... I pretty much think Windows 8 will flop on the desktop, like Vista did. I'm not sure how well the tablets will be received... I would imagine that they are too late again.
