"A Computer on every desktop! Microsoft in every computer! We win!! Hey, where did everybody go?"
We're outside in the sunshine with wireless multi-touch internet enabled tablets and a million other places.
The world has outgrown MS's vision. If you want to make money you gotta either predict or create the future.
What does MS say to me these days?
"Other people's UIs are nice."
"You must use our software at work"
"Do you remember how much you liked XP?"
"DRM is good"
"We like your tablet - here's a cabinet sized version."
"We've cut our boot time to 30s!"
"Develop for our platform - that's where all the cool kids hang out!!"
Get a clue MS!
Find someone who's been hidden away in a cave for the last 20 years and ask them what people will need *tomorrow*.

Google, Apple, Microsoft and the Linux crowd crafted mascots ranging from cute lizards to circles of life. In this slideshow, we look at the origins of the logos and look ahead to their future."

They claim data shows that what drives climate change is sun activity. After watching this the award-winning Gore piece has little credibility left. Video at google and youtube.
