While the iPod was a money-making product for Apple, Microsoft’s Zune brought in disastrous sales. This technology giant took 2 years to sell 2 million music players. In contrast, Apple sold 100 million iPods in the five years leading up to the Zune launch. Photo: Getty.

Windows Phone: Microsoft’s smartphone operating system was released in 2010. However, at that time, Android and iPhone attracted a large number of users. In addition, sales of smartphones from Apple (iOS) and Android operating system companies also began to grow. As a result, Microsoft’s competing product is seen as being launched at the wrong time.

Windows Phone is by no means a bad operating system. In fact, the Nokia Lumia series is praised for its display, color, and camera. But that wasn’t enough to entice customers as iPhones and Androids dominated the mobile market. As a result, Microsoft had a hard time attracting device and app makers to Windows Phone.

Bing: “The search engine competes with Google” is a phrase that many people refer to when talking about Bing. Of course, Bing cannot compare to Google because this is already a search engine with huge traffic. Photo: Search Engine Journal.

Besides, Bing’s search results are often not as accurate as Google’s. In addition, the slow speed is also the second minus point for this system. Therefore, Bing is considered one of the jokes of the technology world. Photo: Search Engine Journal.

Windows Vista: Released in 2006 and it struggled to overcome the shadow of Windows XP – one of Microsoft’s most popular Windows operating systems. So, to convince users to switch to Windows Vista, the company added a more colorful interface called Aero, along with a new media player, and some features like Windows Defender and Windows Mail.

However, the integration of new graphics and other changes focused on the BIOS and processor security made Vista a slow operating system. In addition, the performance of using applications and especially games on Vista is much slower than on Windows XP. Therefore, Microsoft recognized the failure and accelerated the release of Windows 7 soon after. Photo: Tech Republic.
