Revenues have nearly tripled from $25.3bn (£16.6bn) in 2001 to $74.3bn in 2012, and operating income has risen from $11.7bn to $25.3bn.

Ballmer has not grown the scope of the business.  Media center has gone nowhere in terms of integrating with the cable box.  My windows phone has nothing from the user perspective that makes it stand out.  A windows tablet should have been to market before the iPad. A windows mobile should be running on any phone with a cpu. And now MSFT is nowhere with robots.
