    From the article:

    "Since Mr. Ballmer took over from Bill Gates as CEO in January 2000,
    Microsoft's market value has more than halved from $556 billion to
    Wednesday's close of $219 billion. Rival Apple's market value has surged
    from $15.6 billion to $221 billion over the same period."

    I guess Gates should fire the little shit and take over again.

    Wow! With MSFT sinking like that & APPL surging like that during the
    same time interval, I guess the Monkeyboy can't blame it on the
    prevailing market conditions. Any breakdown within MSFT?

    Just doing my noble mission. Making sure that people know the truth about
    Ubuntu. I need to do this to correct the lies you spread on a daily basis
    about that shitty product. If you feel that you need to spread the word
    about Ubuntu, try going to another country, taking 10,000 CD's, knock on
    doors and try to get people to migrate to that shitty product you love so
    much.

    With regards to Microsoft and their place on the financial charts, you are
    just grasping at straws. Microsoft is holding it's own right now, and doing
    well. At some time in the future, they will probably pass Apple. Not
    worried. Maybe you should find something better to do with your time.

    Smoke a bowl. Power down your PC. Go outside.

    Three things are the main reasons MS will fail:

    1. Mobile devices.

    2. Cloud Computing.

    3. Steve Ballmer

    Where I live it's raining outside right now and I have a lot of work to
    do. Got any more stupid suggestions?

    Neither one of you have obviously installed Lucid Lynx. It's a game changer.

    CORRECTION: It's a time waster.

    Ubuntu and other INFERIOR Linux distros were written by geeks for geeks who
    can't get laid.

    Since MS is software and Apple is hardware what are you comparing

    Apple computers don't come with Apple software? Since when? They (not
    me) are comparing the value of the companies and Apple is number one,
    kicking MS down to number two. Do you understand now or do I have to go
    slower?

    Apples stock price is high cause they can sell moronic devices to iIdiots at
    almost any price.
    Wonder if ubuntushitsthebed will run on an iPad?
    Then they sucker people with their app store where the billing never stops.
    Death has a line of uDumbass coming out soon.
    Look for it.

    uDumbass PCs will run linux exclusively...part of the uDumbass philosophy of
    seeing clients as slow witted marks.
    The uDumbass Updater will secretly disable various parts of the
    OS...creating uDumbass service calls.
    uDumbass phone techs will all answer the phone with "Thanks for calling you
    dumbass. All of our lines are busy with other valued dumbasses, please call
    back on the 6th Tuesday of the month."

    If you call under 100% markup, from Apple's cost 'any price',
    then you're right.

    Are you The Rainman or something? Raining here, too, thunderstorms; but
