Conclusion: Debate over Microsoft’s mixed record of successes and slow innovation during the last decade has incited conjecture as to its long term durability. As many highly successful vendors have disappeared very quickly, the same inference for Microsoft is a reasonable one.

While Microsoft has been ‘disrupted’ in the sense that it has not adjusted smoothly to new conditions, its demise is not imminent. The corporation has to fix several parts of its business, which will not be easy, but it’s financially sound and growing. Microsoft customers need not fret over its longevity. However, they ought to examine how much they depend on Microsoft or other flexible options over the next five years.
