    MS is fighting for survival of relevance, and relevance, on multiple fronts. This is not a time to 'reinvent' what your competitors have already invented that is burying your former cash cow.
    secondly, did anyone do a count on the number of times the term "device" is employed? they are shipping $$ with every Surface now and I suspect every device of whatever kind

    Data is a year old but how are they fighting for relevance with a total market share of 70.72%

    1st of all, the new Mission Statement says MS is about the mobile market, not the "desktop" market if there is such a thing. So even MS cares not about the data above.

    So to what MS cares about: Microsoft's Windows Phone Market Share Declined in 2014 -- Redmondmag.com
    "Windows Phone is expected to have 2.7 percent market share by year's end, the market research firm said in its latest worldwide smartphone forecast. That's down from the 3.3 percent share it captured in 2013."

    If one considers "tablet" to be equivalent to part of what MS is calling "mobile" then the following is relevant, if the data has integrity

    Over the past thirty years there seems to be someone out there that is/are espousing the down fall of Microsoft. . .you can read it here on the 10's just about every day, yet for some reason they just continue to move along just fine. . .
