PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Microsoft has Windows Mobile 6.x (on the way out) Windows Phone 7, Windows Embedded Standard 7, Windows Embedded Compact 7 and then Windows 7 for tablet PCs and netbooks. What this bevy of systems is missing is a coherent answer for the tablet form factor. Windows Embedded Compact 7, which is the OS aimed at the mobile sector, isn't yet released, and when it is, it won't have a uniform UI, but will depend on hardware vendors to customize. It's an appealing strategy from the vendors point of view, I guess because they get to differentiate their products from their competitors, but it's not a recipe for success.

If you feel strongly otherwise, then a Microsoft Stock purchase would be a wise idea.

Oh man, the market does not work like that. Nobody buy MSFT or AAPL for dividends, that would be overpriced. If you buy MSFT or AAPL stocks, that is because you want to sell fast. In other words, you think the stock price will rise in the coming years, not that they will make more money. You think people will buy that stock.
