Let me recap and end this thing. You think that MSFT is the best investment around. I say watch out. Look what happened to IBM. You respond with"Yeah, but how far in the future? In 1980, you might have predicted the downfall of IBM. But it's still there.
Still would have multiplied your money by 10. So there."

Take a look at IBM's chart from 1987 to today. The price of the stock is almost the same today as it was in 1987.

IBM shareholders have suffered for 10 years to get back to where they were(not counting inflation). Sure the stock went up from 80 to 87, but you would not have multiplied your money by very much. IBM has re-invented itself over and over again during this period. MSFT may
have a worse fate. IBM didn't have as many enemies as MSFT does. Finally, so we can clear this up and move on, I'm not predicting anything here. Just making a comparison and illustrating the possibilities.
