It’s hard to consider Microsoft much of a growth business anymore. The PC is a mature product segment. Windows OS is well established and represents more of a stable business than one with exciting growth. Same goes for the enterprise components of Microsoft’s business.
But the web? Still growing. Like crazy. Bing has been no match for Google.com, and Microsoft is nowhere in video (think YouTube) and scrambling to make up for perpetually failing to gain share in mobile with Windows Phone 7 and, soon, Windows Phone 8. Meanwhile, Android has become the No. 1 mobile operating system on the planet.
