I am so glad that Microsoft is back, it was really depressing me how they were in the back seat for so long. I am a passionate Windows guy and I truly enjoy their products they produce. Well done Microsoft!
Francis Hooton (15 days ago)
Microsoft, will you please stop forcing software down loads into our computers, without asking if we would like them. You repeatedly do it. it is very rude of you and very arrogant. many of these downloads, mess the computer settings up. When Bill gates was in charge, he did not behave like this. Francis, Scotland.

I think it's interesting that we are letting the dollars talk so much. One would watch this video and think that Microsoft is a new company that is winning in every category; when in reality it had one or two innovations that really started to make money. This doesn't acknowledge Xbox, or Xbox Live, Skype, Azure, Office 365, or even their new customer bases of governments, healthcare, and education.

Hmm. Ist up apple had a graphic interface long before Microsoft. Gates stole/conned the beginnings of MSDos the roots of windows as we know it way back from the guy hat made CP M. Use a few facts you got wrong sadly. And yes Microsoft was on top for a very short time. And only time will tell if it can stay near. It for any given time

Microsoft. Crappy company. The only good computer software from Microsoft was bought by Microsoft. Made crappy copies of Apple. All the pro Microsoft dinks criticize Apple products, BUT never complain about lousy Microsoft ripoffs like the Zune or Windows phone. And they're home of the crappy red ring of death videogame consoles

He tripled the value of the company? Why isn’t he talked about in the same breath as Steve Jobs
nabagaca (1 month ago)
Because unlike Apple, Microsoft lets the respective leaders of their independent branches do the majority of the talking. Back in job's prime, anything Apple had him at the forefront so he was ever-present in the media, whereas you see a surface event, microsoft's surface boss will be there, xbox event, the xbox leader will be there, a windows event, you get the idea, and so Satya Nadella simply isnt as public as jobs was i guess

Microsoft comeback started with Ballmer he laid out the road for their success during their darkest time. Since those foundations are created with him. Nadella just came in at the right time to reap the rewards.

+Jitendra Singh Some things require time. Not just the foundations to architect such a big infrastructure on a point that is global would require 5 years at minimum it isn't just a simple consumer product we are talking about here.

Microsoft should create cheapest motion capture Alternative compared to what Hollywood, Game companies use which is very expensive. Motion capture must be affordable so that more and more indie developers can make AAA quality video games.. Currently Indie Game developers are stuck with pixelated (vintage) and 2D games.

What do you mean back on top? They for one day in 2018 topped Apple. But only for one day. Last time I looked, the world’s fortune 500 (or 1000) are ranked by revenue. By the STANDARD business metric, Apple is a whopping 3 times that of Microsoft. In fact, While Apple makes the top 15, Microsoft does not even make the fortune 50 list. They blew 8 billion on Nokia, and did nothing in the phone market. Dead on arrival. Windows desktop share has been steady dropping. From JUST 5 years ago they were 90%. They are now only 75%. And this number is in fact MUCH worse. The REAL number would be to ask HOW much time and WHERE do you spend your computing power and consumption? With phones, tablets etc., then the windows share is MUCH worse. You spending less and less time on your desktop. You can have a high share of windows desktop, but MORE and more of computing time is spent away from the desktop. So what if you have 75% of the desktop. If you only have 3 people using the desktop then you can have a 100% share but it DOES NOT matter anymore. So apple laptops, and Android phones, iPads etc. are causing this drop, and it will only get worse. Then we have the web server market. Again, a small 8.7% market share for Microsoft internet services. Apache web server (open source) is 44%, and Nginx is 41%. So once again they not even in that game. So what enterprise systems are you talking about? All the big gains in enterprise are coming from open source, and places like Amazon web services. For example, Netflix now uses Amazon services – it is cheaper and less hassle then running their own services. So from Amazon to Google to Netflix – none of these new computing platforms are based on Microsoft. And the fortune 500 number bear out who and what and where the growth is occurring. Samsung blew past Microsoft – they are chasing Apple now. We see articles of EU towns and cities dumping windows in favour of Linux. French MP dumped windows. Swiss schools dumped windows. So by the standard fortune 500 list, Microsoft does not make the top 50. And they trail behind Apple, Amazon, Google, Samsung and a few more I missed. Note how all of these HIGHER ranked companies are based on new computing platforms (web, mobile etc.), and their revenues are far higher than Microsoft. With most of EU dumping windows, I fail to see how or where this comeback has or is occurring? Did the BBC journalist as a child when he was crying cause their parents to pick him up by his ankles, and drop him on a hard floor to stop him from crying? Now repeated dropping on your head by your parents certainly solved the crying issue but the result was some brain damage to come out with this report. Exactly WHAT area are they increasing market share? Now of course their cloud area has increased, but they still LOST market share in that area to competitors. And their cloud growth has been due to siting their existing base from desktop to office on line. So while cloud is growing for Microsoft it is growing for EVERYONE else right now too! So they are losing ground and market share in the cloud. And schools and universities are adopting google docs. And again in EU we see most schooling, university and governments from top down to the city level are dumping windows. And none of the computing courses at university level are using Microsoft tools. You see some use at colleagues etc. that train people for Excel etc., but I am not aware of ANY university computing courses using or teaching Microsoft tools and platforms as I write this. Exactly what is going to occur when these graduates flood the marketplace? Most of the EU is dumping windows. For one, they don’t like the USA so this fits into their political narrative, and two they can save money and trade dollars. Did I miss some memo here? Microsoft is lower in the fortune 500 list then Apple, Google, HP, Amazons, For end of 2018, we have Rank: #11 – Apple #12 – Samsung #18 – Amazon #52 – Alphabet (Google) So where is Microsoft in this list? Well, NOT in the top 50, they are #71 Now Microsoft not a poor company, but they VASTLY trail behind Apple, Samsung, Amazon and Google and all of the new emerging technologies. The fact that stock traders pushed Microsoft stock higher then Apple for a few days does not reflect the long industry fortune 500 ranking here at all.

+Cameron I am a well known Microsoft fan boy, and was a MVP from 2003-2017 (14 years in a row). My published books (3 of them) are all based around Microsoft products, and I am a solid developer based on the Microsoft stack and eco system. Telling you the sky is blue does not mean I hate the sky, or that you now have to go out and love the color blue. The facts I pointed out are simple facts. How any of this can and does reflect on me being a VERY long time Microsoft fan in the community has nothing to do with pointing out what is obvious. I love Microsoft tools, and I consider their latest sets of products like Server 2016 not only the best product in terms of quality from Microsoft, but is one of their best products ever. Spend most of my day in Visual Studio. So you have to learn the difference between me telling you facts and observations as opposed to what technology platforms I love and use all day long - and those technologies are all based on the Microsoft platform. Feel free to read about me here: http://www.kallal.ca/about/index.htm

+Cameron I used the world fortune listing, and so that includes large tech companies like Samsung. The idea that we ignore the global companies and only look at USA today would indeed be the wrong way as to how one goes about this.
Cameron (1 month ago)
How have you managed to be so wrong? You must be using a very old version of the Fortune 500 list because Microsoft are currently 30th for the traditional revenue list. The list which actually matters is the "Most Profitable" companies since revenue doesn't take into account expenses. On the "Most Profitable" Fortune 500 list Microsoft ranks 9th with Google falling behind at 14th. However more importantly the Fortune 500 list is for UNITED STATES corporations so Samsung wouldn't even be on the bloody list. I have no fucking clue what ass you pulled those ranks out of but you are clearing a delusional Microsoft hating Linux fanboy!

Nadella is no second coming though he's presided over several failures "one Windows" what happened? Windows 10 is behind its billion devices hope, it took years to surpass market share of Windows 7 despite free update extensions and fire sales, & the store is a wasteland. Xbox interface is an even bigger mess than it's desktop counterpart & it's signature game series Halo has been on the decline since they brought it in house.

as a consumer i would say microsoft turned around when they ditched the OS increment titles 7, 8, 10 and at the same time improved the windows updates process by leaps and bounds. Now they just have to catch up with their snail browser and from what I have read, microsoft is going to be switching over to a chromium platform for their own branded browser as did Opera browser and a few others. Make no mistake though Google and the alphabet tentacles are by far the largest digital monster.

0:23 That woman has almost no idea what she's talking about. Over 60% of Apples revenues are derived from the iPhone alone, that's not a good position to be in. Companies like OnePlus, Huawei etc. are catching up fast, not to mention Samsung taking a bolder stance in recent years and giving people what they actually want and not taking features away from them because 'courage'; Apple's dominance in the mobile market diminishes daily, which is why their stocks have plummeted since their peak. Microsoft on the other hand, have their fingers in so many different pies (Office 365, Azure, SharePoint, Exchange, Office, Windows, Xbox, Surface etc.) that their position as a technology company is significantly more stable. I would much rather be the CEO of Microsoft than the CEO of Apple, simply because they will be around much longer, guaranteed.

It wasn't open source in general that Steve Balmer called cancer; it was actually Linux, but not because it was open source, but rather more specifically because if its (copyleft) GPL license. That license does indeed basically propagate to whatever it's used by, forcing it to also be GPL (and thus open source as well). So it's not inaccurate to call it a cancer, although of course that's an intentional negative connotation from Steve Balmer's part. Things, still, have changed. Although Microsoft wouldn't create new GPL software from scratch, they have contributed quite a bit to GPL code (such as Linux itself); and of course Microsoft is big on their own (non-GPL) open source projects such as TypeScript and VSCode.

Apple didn't lack of innovation. It's just their way to create solutions are so... tryhard to be anti-mainstream (Like Metal API, Safari WebKit, AudioUnit plugin, etc.) The only good thing Apple did is they really respects user privacy highly, like not sold any user data to any advertising company and did user-tracking only as needed.
