@fanbaby:

When you think about it, even if they might not own a single Microsoft stock, they are still literally invested in Microsoft because their skill set is so focused on what Microsoft puts out. I think they believe if they FUD HTML5 enough, Silverlight will come back from the dead, WP will emerge from obscurity, and the years of professional experience they invested in it will suddenly become relevant again.

It's kind of a sad thing in a way though, but fortunately the tech industry always has lots of open jobs so it is never hard to be employed even with obsolete skills. I doubt this will change any time soon, but if it does expect it to get even dirtier.
