I had a good laugh reading Wired's article on "The 15 Dumbest Apple Predictions" It makes you really wonder whether you should believe anything you read at the time or just adopt a wait and see attitude.
Now the thing that the article doesn't go on to say is how brave the people making the (now we know incorrect) predictions were. It is much easier to look back and say.. yeah that was a dumb prediction, or that was a dumb stock pick!
So going out on a limb here.. here are my top 3 predictions for OpenOffice for 2008:
- PC manufactures will bow to consumer pressure and put OpenOffice on their machines
- OpenOffice downloads will grow by 50% to 1.5M per week
- The ODF format will be supported by Microsoft Office products after continuing government and industry support.
Whew.. any predictions you care to share?
