I saw this infographic recently concerning Microsoft’s stagnation and Apple’s phenomenal growth in the last ten years. I regard myself as rather agnostic concerning brand wars and really don’t care what technologies a person or company uses, just so long as it works well. However, it might be interesting to note the lackluster decade that Microsoft has had. The Zune, Windows Mobile and Bing are all products that Microsoft as invested heavily in (especially Bing) and yet nothing much has come of any of them.
Clicking the infographic takes you to the site “MBAOnline” for a look at the larger graphic.

I do see some good tools and products that Microsoft has made in the last ten years, but those are mostly systems tools. Aside from the Xbox, I can’t find a major consumer product that has taken off and set Microsoft apart in any space. Am I missing something? Anyone have a contrary opinion they’d like to share? Let me know below.
