Member since:

they spend 6 billion in researching and developing
-Operating systems (embedded, dektop, mediacentre, server & co)
-Server software (iis, mssql)
-prodactivity software (office, visio & co)
-developement-tools (visual studio)
-games (incl directX)
-consoles (xbox, xbox360)
-HIDs (keyboards, mice, trackballs)
-a lot of other stuff

I'd say it's money well spent, but the average troll will disagree with me.
