Making my Whack IT Predictions for 2009

Posted by mattray on December 17, 2008


I got a chance to be on the IT Management Podcast yesterday with Michael Cote’, John Willis and Dave Rosenberg.  Had a good time making my whack predictions for 2009:

  • Microsoft buying RIM (and shutting down Windows Mobile)
  • Apple making a cloud move
  • Sun getting diced up in a hostile takeover
  • Amazon selling Android apps
  • Amazon buying up some of the cloud providers
  • The Big 4 not buy any open source competitors
  • and more!

Missed out on my chance to call 2009 the Year of the Linux Desktop, but it could happen, I’ve got a good feeling this time.
