"Rich heritage & unique capability around building productivity experiences. We help people..."

This may all be true. But you've also pissed off a lot of loyal customers, users and developers along the way... People that now want to see the back of you.... I'm talking here about the people below.... How are you going to win them back when there are now real alternatives....?

....Users who hated the Win8 changes and just want another Win7.

....Office users who felt you cynically changed Office and introduced the ribbon to create new lock-in and alienate loyal users on older versions...

....Developers who got certified, only to discover their programs were suddenly dropped.

....Developers who helped push .Net into the corporate space, who now see you backtrack away to JavaScript / html / html5....

....Resellers, who plugged MS product for years being punished for not pushing CloudFog offerings, when everyone knows early adopters will be guinea-pigs...

....Xbox fans alienated by user behavior monitoring, and draconian control tactics, who remain worried you'll reintroduce the beloved 'Trusted Computing' model later on..
