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.

edit: What I mean is that I think there’s not much more than can be done with mouse operating systems beyond polish, and making them better web clients. Even with OS X they’re just improving APIs to allow flashier apps, and polishing the overall experience, but I can’t see how OS X could radically change into something else and not be just a continuation of the point and click desktop. At the end of the day it needs to run Photoshop and XCode the way it does. What more is there to add?

The long term future is the ’Web and the Internet device, everything in-between is transition.
