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.

Then again the average user doesn't realize that there are alternatives to anything but Windows, Office, and Windows server. It still amazes me that in a tech world where everything is constantly changing, more than a decade later, MS is still able to rely on Windows and Office sales OR making people believe that Windows and Office are the only way to conduct 'real' business on a PC.
There are alternatives but they are not as good.

Office is still the best product out-there, and it's more or less the only way to conduct real business on. It has most features and best UI. IBM has the next best offer with Lotus.
