Microsoft Sometimes, the sheer size of a company like Microsoft can make it quite hard to see and realise just how large and profitable such a company can really be. In these kinds of situations, there's nothing like a clear graph to make all those pretty numbers tangible. Up to a point.

RE[3]: server and tools

Member since:

(and it would seem irrational to make a graph like that unless they wanted to deceptively inflate Office profits by 300 - 400% for example)

It's a common graph type (apparently called a "Stacked Area Chart")... so call it irrational if you want, but it's not uncommon.

Also important to note, Microsoft didn't create this graph.
