It'll be a gradual decline for Microsoft - personally I thought they should've been put out of their misery at the Crown Jewels or anti-trust stages and there's been a lot of Windows-type pain caused to innocent users by the courts not getting those judgments right when they had the opportunity. Most of the action now and in the foreseeable future is with Apple-style hand-held devices and the kids wouldn't be seen dead with a Microsoft-type product in that world.
Actually MS's version of the Apple TV was called Web TV and they didn't create it. They just bought the company that developed it. They then did what I feared most. They let it go down the tubes. Too bad as I got one before they bought the company for my one Aunt who is definitely not technically inclined. Now if only Apple would make their product work like Web TV I could get that for my aunt.
