    <p>Very nice discussion about why Microsoft doesn't get the same treatment in the news as apple and google. I would like to add my two cents, as I believe that the main reason is the lack of a cult-like aura surrounding the company. That is what apple and google do and as much as I dislike it, it has positive effects that Microsoft lacks.</p><p>V.</p>
