Integration of MS products with MS products is not a reason to call something great. This applies if you replace MS with any other corporation.

A products move from good to great is strongly based on its coupling and cohesion with other solutions. This is true for a software package, a hardware package, or a process. For example, Google Apps and Picassa have very little to no coupling and cohesion. Visual Studio and Azure have a very functional level of coupling and cohesion. Each is greater than the sum of their parts.

"Microsoft isn't exactly known for its hardware prowess" When fans of Apple chime in, they never seem to mention the Newton, Lisa, or Pippin. Yet, any product failure on Microsoft is used as evidence for the "impending doom of Microsoft". Quite frankly, Microsoft's batting average is about as good or better than any other company.
