Sadly

I think it has to do with how people work in groups. Each of those products had a leader with a vision yet I find a lot of groups to self destruct as they try to take other team members down a peg (or notch) or won't follow the leader.

Another issue I found was that teams would often be found copying the project and running off to another company resulting in a heavy suspicion of the workers.

It's a sad work place.

The thing about Office is it's dead now. Why?

There are fine open source replacements to MS Office so this can be jarring to someone that thinks they will make an Office killer. Accept that this product is done, over and move onto your next thing.

It's wide open...

Anyone can do this provided they offer something everyone wants or needs. if you play follow the leader or catch-up too often you're really spinning your wheels. Until India or any IT capable person does their own thing it really boils down can they really think independently. Many a current IT or computer leader was born from garage builders and/or lone thinkers that got the idea going and capitalize on it. Of course, the climate of computing is narrower than it was, so anyone offering anything now has to be far better or cheaper and/or totally a new concept. It seems many a "free offering" is just as good as many a commercial one, but the commercial side wants stability and that is what really keeps many going on the older or much supported offering. IMHO, that's the way i see it.
