GeneralWill Threshold be a GUI over Microsoft Services? Pin

I have read in news that MS announced itself as a 'device and service' company. This model seems to mean they look at software as service instead of product.

Latest changes seem to be in that direction too. Office (365) is in the cloud so is a version of Windows (Azure) and SqlServer. There is also a minimal version of Windows (RT) produced for devices which doesn't have desktop.

We are obviously at the middle of a change and 'Threshold' must mean we'll be at its peak probably in a year. It seems to me that desktop is going to be removed completely (at least the way it is today).

I was wondering how will service vs. product affect me as a Windows developer and also what will be the impact on companies I design software for? What shall I prepare them for and how to decide about their long term plans?

What do you think is the end result of all these changes on Microsoft platform?

Planning to move to Germany, looking for a job there!
Looking for a Windows desktop programmer? I look forward to hearing from you! Smile | :)
