MS is going only even going to build good enough products for average joe company. In other words slow progress forward, they don't need to innnovate on top. They will simply buy. So MS APP-V is really not that exiting for a while, while there are other who will innovate this to the next level. Perhaps with gates gone, this mind set will change.
