The world needs Microsoft
My experience with large companies is that MS hastens old-company disease. It starts when the key to internal advancement is to learn every trick in making a Powerpoint presentation to the Big Bosses, and sending the perfect email to everybody on Outlook. The last few years have been kind to these companies, since everybody got up to the same level. Now, they will be hit with the huge upgrade cycle and features galore. Can't wait until the really smart ones send Cortana Outlook spreadsheets. :)
Like IBM going down, this clears the road for young upstarts.
