    Post what does this sentence mean?

    Hello my dear friends.
    somebody can know what does this sentence mean?
    "could" can not exist without verb after it.
    You think transition is wrong word and writer must write transit?
    For example this sentence must be "Microsoft could seamlessly transit the army of Windows desktop developers into the new world of web application"?
    This sentence is:
    Microsoft could seamlessly transition the army of Windows desktop developers into the new world of web
    applications.

    Thanks.

    "Transition" is given as a verb here. "Transit" isn't the right verb.

    "Could" cannot exist without a verb after it. Who told you that? It certainly can.

    Do you think 'transition' is the wrong word and the writer must write 'transit'?
    Please note my corrections to your post.

    Please note that a better title would have been Transit or transition.
