    jimbo 45, I can tell you, disagree with what I say about Bill Gates. I know he donates a lot of $$$ but the 25 million he,s making a day, he can do that, and has to donate a lot. He pays no taxes on any donation. I realize he don't do much with MS anymore, he don't have to. For Microsoft to lay off 18,000 is crazy . Some of them people live pay check to pay check iam sure. Does Bill Gates care at all. A little but not much, he will still get his million,s while some get nothing but unemployment. Listen iam no computer expert at all, matter of fact I don't know much all about these computer,s. That's why iam allways asking questions on here.
    Thank,s Chuck

    It is not just Microsoft moving services to the cloud. Let's see, gmail is in the cloud. ITunes is on the cloud. Kindle books are in the cloud. Moving to the cloud isn't a trait just from MS that should be considered universally bad.

    As far as layoffs go, it's something all companies do. With acquisitions come redundancy that has to be dealt with. Sales dwindle as alternative devices from other vendors gain substantial traction.

    One can argue that executives are never worth what they are paid, but obviously these companies hire them and keep them on board, so somebody must be see their value.

    To late now, I didn't know at the time. My XP box died a year before support ended. So, I had no time to research.

    OMG! Some make it sound like they have to learn how to climb Mount Everest. It's really not that difficult to learn.
