> Microsoft has yet to go out of business like Apple once did.
Microsoft stock has flatlined since Balmer took over. There is very little difference between going out of business and stagnant share price.
All of their new ventures have bombed.
Apple never went out of business, and it's stock is skyrocketing ever since Steve took over. Nearly all of their new ventures have been successful.
Clearly Steve is a better CEO than Balmer is.
> we are not on the road of global integration.
No: your government is doing a piss-poor job at global assimilation.
> Also we are still a huge super power country.
The US can't even subdue a puny little uprising of a handful of uneducated tribesmen in a tiny little desert nation.
You may talk the talk but you certainly don't walk the walk: Super power country my ass.
