To my (admittedly untrained) eye, I'm not sure what Microsoft could have done differently. It had put forward mobile operating systems before; Windows Phone
When MIcrosoft released WP7, they still had an ~18% marketshare. My brother sold phones when the iPhone came out, and he would sell it to anyone who wanted to use Microsoft documents on a phone.
WP7 ruined all that by being a pretty UI that couldn't do much. If they'd maintained backwards compatibility (which they went out of their way to prevent), while making a pretty UI (which they did), then there's a good chance they would be competing now, and Nokia would still be alive.

Sure they had such. Well, Iraq certainly did.
There's a difference between Afghanistan and Iraq.
You can't impose a democracy on an invaded people;
It worked for Japan.
I don't see how it was justified. AQ wasn't the Taliban. We conflated, and still conflate, all Muslims who defy us as AQ.
Do you understand that the Taliban was defending Al Qaeda and Bin Ladin? That could be your problem right there.
And let's be honest, who hasn't had lousy bosses and annoying coworkers? Those are reasons to find another company, not to change careers.
If the man is working 80 hours weeks he doesn't physically have time to do the work at home. Those situations are common for men
That situation isn't common for men.
They could also solve it by attacking the methodology. Is it really fair to correct for "hours worked" rather than "work done"? So the guys get paid more, but it is okay because they stick around till 9pm playing Minecraft and reading Slashdot.
Read the study, not just the summary, before commenting. Your comments will be a lot more informed and interesting.
