Yes really... Gates and the "boys" bet the company and won back in the '80s. Now they've all left or retired...but they took their stock with them. And they left behind the idiot that couldn't get hired anywhere else to run it, Balmer. Why do you think there have been no "bet the farm" initiatives under Balmer? Why do you think the divi is going up? Windows Phone won't get 10% of the market. And MSFT will languish going forward.
