    Is Microsoft going to withdraw from Software sector?

    Yes, what you read is correct. Sources ( explains that Microsoft CEO, Steven A. Ballmer wrote "This is a significant shift, both in what we do and how we see ourselves — as a devices and services company. It impacts how we run the company, how we develop new experiences, and how we take products to market for both consumers and businesses" in his letter to Shareholders. Also, the increasing competition from Ubuntu and upcoming Android for PC and iOSX might have made them shift their way. Anyhow let's wait till the official announcement.

    It is not a surprise if we see back the history of microsoft. I have seen a documentary on Steve Jobs which showed that Bill gates an employee of Apple had gone to start Microsoft and they have a big clash in the initial period and it get settled when Apple has a tie up with microsoft for OS. Whereas Apple was continuing with hardware and Microsoft with software and now it is one who has to fill the gap of Steve Jobs and he is the right person to do.

    It will be interesting to see if Microsoft actually makes the shift from software sector. There is a lot of tough competition with Ubuntu and Android gaining more popularity with every passing day. So, we can expect some drastic steps being taken by Microsoft that will make them a bigger force in the market.
