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.

I thought the baldy was a Freudian slip.

I sat here reading your post thinking "but I am here with my netbook, running Windows 7, Java and JBOSS so I can do development work while I travel..." before realizing DOH! I am one of those power users.

I definitely think there will be a "split" in computing. PCs and even laptops relegated to business and gaming use, then all kinds of internet "devices" for the people who make use of email, social web sites, etc.

I guess this means lower production and higher prices for the old guard equipment... and competitive pricing and larger quantities of the 3G/4G generation of devices.

Better build my gaming/development power house at home up while I can afford it.
