the era of software plus services is now, customers are pushing Microsoft to offer more hosted services, and partners will need to adapt their business models to accommodate that reality. In the consumer space, Web services are already firmly in the mainstream, and large enterprises are developing strategies and incorporating it into their decision-making.
