Lecture Description

Winblad believes IBM has done an extraordinary job at establishing itself as a leader in software. IBM is proactive with acquiring early stage companies and partners well. Microsoft is successful because they view everything as a threat and don't take anything for granted, she says. Linux is still a force and will not easily go away because it is really hard to kill large companies in the software industry.
