Microsoft Microsoft on Thursday reported earnings that were just ahead of analysts' expectations, as the company announced a plan to buy back as much as an extra USD 40 billion worth of its stock. The software maker said it would buy back USD 20 billion through a tender offer set to be completed on Aug. 17. The company said that its board of directors has also authorized the company to buy back up to USD 20 billion worth of stock through June 2011. The company said it has completed the USD 30 billion stock buyback announced two years ago.

LOL Rayz... i was about to say that same thing hehe... dont forget music players as well now ;)

The company is very wide spread (not to mention if you go into their research departments) it's just everyone likes to focus only on the first in your list OS's ... the fact is though they are all over the place
