Intervistato da The Register, Scott Mc Nealy dà una risposta molto interessante alla domanda “Qual è l’errore più grosso che avete evitato?” parlando di una proposta di creare una linea di PC Wintel.
La risposta fa riflettere, specie ripensando a Olivetti e agli altri produttore europei di computer.

The Register You can’t be a PC reseller and a computer creator company in the same company. I think IBM’s proven that; HP has proven that; DEC has proven that. The Asians have proven that. And the Europeans have proven that.

Every company that went onto Wintel ultimately hollowed themselves out: it was a self-imposed lobotomy. They’re no longer R&D companies and it was massively painful. They were shareholder disasters.
