You need to get a hundred (maybe a thousand things right) to build a great enterprise. I realised this quite early in my life as an entrepreneur. Maybe in a few quick years if not months. But it took me many many years to realise that you can do it only one at a time.

Microsoft has much on its hands to catch-up with google, apple, sony et. al. That's mostly on the consumer side. Which also is the most profit making part of its the business (at least that's so for its Windows and Office products). It might therefore chose to relinquish this space and fight IBM, Oracle, SAP etc. in the business software space or do it the other way around. It will be interesting to see. Or else it risks becoming a producer of not-so-great products.

"There is a time in every man's education when he arrives at the conviction that envy is ignorance; that imitation is suicide; that he must take himself for better, for worse, as his portion; that though the wide universe is full of good, no kernel of nourishing corn can come to him but through his toil bestowed on that plot of ground which is given to him to till.
A man is relieved and gay when he has put his heart into his work and done his best;
But what he has said or done otherwise, shall give him no peace. It is a deliverance which does not deliver. In the attempt his genius deserts him; no muse befriends; no invention, no hope.
The power which resides in him is new in nature, and none but he knows what that is which he can do, nor does he know until he has tried.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
