Microsoft We all know that Microsoft doesn't actually make computers. It makes the software, and then lets an almost infinite amount of manufacturers build computers that can run its software. These manufacturers often make a mess of things, delivering computers filled to the brim with crapware. What would happen if Microsoft made computers? Well, for one, they would be void of crapware. Two, they would help users install the software they want before leaving the store - including software from competitors.

What if Microsoft adopted Apple's strategy and either sold their own hardware or picked just one vendor to sell their software? Maybe everyone else will either go out of business or switch to Linux.
