Boy, I shouldn't butt in here (Hi Sal) but I just stumbled in on this and I got to wonder:

"They said Microsoft's current market capitalization adjusted for inflation is what IBM's was in 1951. From that point, over the next 9 years IBM went up 16 times in value."

Microsoft's current market cap is $130 billion or so, #4 overall and pretty close to the current #1, GE at $170 billion. Do you guys really think Microsoft will be worth $2 trillion in 9 years? The company has had a great run, but it's a large cap stock now. All the new worlds Mr. Bill has in his sights have established players who might be a little harder to roll over that lotus and wordperfect.

Cheers, Dan.
