Microsoft's 13 biggest wins and fails of 2012

PC World - You'd be hard-pressed to find a tech company that had a busier year than Microsoft. Besides unveiling new versions of Windows, Windows Phone, and Office, the Redmond giant instituted a sweeping visual overhaul tying together the entire software product lineup. Microsoft also revitalized its cloud strategy (hello, SkyDrive!) and even launched Surface RT, a new take on the tablet category that steals a page from Apple’s we-can-make-better-hardware-th an-any-of-our-OEM-partners-can playbook. (Culture, Microsoft)

Agreed, they shouldn't have let go of Mr. Sinofsky.

I'm not sure why they would consider a $100 yearly subscription to Office a win. That's a fail in my book. I'm so fricken sick of every company trying to come up with ways to charge monthly/yearly subscriptions to everything.
