Has Microsoft Pulled Off Its Biggest Reinvention Ever?

With the launch of Windows 8, followed closely by Surface RT and Windows Phone 8, I guess a case can be made that Microsoft has indeed pulled off its biggest reinvention ever. Now, whether you like what has come from that reinvention is a different story altogether.

It's been a (re)defining few days for Microsoft, with the unveiling of three key products in less than a week آ— all aiming to deliver one message: that Microsoft is not only relevant but central to the post-PC world. The near-simultaneous launches of Microsoft Surface, Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 show Microsoft is mustering its armies for the battle of ecosystems with Apple and Google.
