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.

I agree. It’s going to be in the ten to twenty year timespan, but it could be workstations for developers, and tablets and other devices for consumers. It depends on whether we come up with a new programming paradigm to suit programming on a multi-touch device (Bring back HyperCard! ;) )
