    Nothing wrong with killing unprofitable ventures. But you'd expect them to treat Windows better, at least.

    They’re living off the Azure gamble that paid off big and also milking Office and to a lesser extent Windows as much as they can. Unfortunately Microsoft has been feeling the effects of their own competency crisis so Windows is falling, burning through its historic momentum. I wonder if they just jeeted themselves into oblivion or if it’s more complex than that.

      Getting into the biggest emerging market after it had decidecly proven itself and you had all the capex in place already was quite the gamble

        Azure was a good gamble but still a gamble. Just like Arc was a good gamble, but unlike Azure they put a con artist faker in charge of it so it flopped. There’s no guarantees and screwing up the implementation can bury you anyway.

    Same thing with Amazon, their margis were relatively crappy, they built a bunch of IT infrastructure for it, overkill and rented out the rest, and suddenly quadrupled their margins with AWS.
    Or something like that.
    It's quite funny really.
    Who the frick buys all that cloud computing?

      Literally everyone. Large swathes of the internet that you would think of as “independent” are hosted on aws. Netflix runs off of aws, and so on. These situations kinda remind me how Sony’s biggest revenue stream was insurance and financial services, yet consumer electronics always seemed to run at a loss.

        I get how a Mom and Pop's instance might use them for lack of knowledge of better alternatives, but Netflix clearly could have built their own datacenters years ago and I bet that would have cost less than half of what they spent on AWS, including with the initial investments.

      Every business, because businesses see issues arising from maintaining their own infrastructure, some bean-counter gets the bright idea to move everything to the cloud, because I guess they don't teach about vendor lock-in in MBA courses, and then once they're in the cloud it's really, really hard to move back to on-prem or even a hybrid model, because that requires high up-front investment that's impossible to convince other bean-counters to approve in this day and age, even if it saves money long-term. They save money for a few quarters until they realize that the cloud company has them by the balls and can charge whatever they want, or they miss something critical like egress fees way too late because MBAs are morons that don't know anything about anything.

      source: cloud consultant, I make a living convincing companies to move things to the cloud, and I'd say about 70% of them really just need Azure DevOps at most, because maintaining their CI/CDs is where the majority of their issues come from. When I say MBAs are morons I speak from experience, they are so easily fooled by buzzwords.

      Just not on Xbox unfortunately
      Microsoft is at a distant third place in console gaming which wouldn't be too bad of a spot but they changed their business model a few years back with Game Pass.
      Game Pass is a wonderful idea and would probably work great if they were a clear market leader in console gaming. But as is Game Pass has hit its limits in potential subscriber counts, there's simply not enough gamers on Xbox platforms to have GP make sense as a business.
      It's not a matter of GP itself making money, apparently it does fairly well, it's that everything else on Xbox sells like shit and that includes games not on Game Pass.
      So instead of buying a couple 60 dollar games and a few 14,99 indie hits every year, these same people are now only paying for a 60 dollar a year subscription instead and they're buying nothing else. That's a pretty significant cut in the Xbox income, and especially in third-party dev incomes.
      The only way out is to either kill Game Pass, eat the losses or to sell 100 million+ annual GP subscriptions which is a hard task when the Xbox userbase isn't even half that.

    Hardware selling is a burden for the profit ratio, especially consoles that are sold with minimal margin or even at a loss in the beginning of the cycle.
    Otherwise this is the clown world, services and AI hype are enough to prop up the market cap. It is even the most valuest company right now.

    How so? The Xbox brand is as big as ever. And a brand is all Xbox ever was, the consoles were never profitable.
    >Win phone ded
    Not his venture. It was dead before he took over, all he did was bury it.
    >Windows getting worse every year and hemorrhaging users
    Windows is hemorrhaging users because normies just do everything on their phones now. This is largely outside of Microsoft's control.

    Imagine if Arc was headed by a talented Western engineer, Intel could have partnered with Microsoft and deployed a world-beating compute cloud and Game Pass service that could have succeeded even in the face of Stadia while GeForce Now is just sitting there half-baked but without ANY competition as usual. So many opportunities shit away on the alter of diversity. I genuinely hope China takes over this clownhole shitworld.

    Companies are moving away from cloud as soon as they saw that they could save a lot of money, they're in for an awakening if AI doesn't click with their products.
