Don't assume that the way things are now are how they will forever be in the future. Businesses are just locked into MS from prior use. It's hard getting people to change. The hurdles of moving your corporate email to Google Apps vs Microsoft Cloud are an example of one of them. It's easier to just stick with Microsoft without having to have your employees learn all over again.
No actually there is a very good reason business's run MS, and that is management of computers/users. If you handled IT you would know, but suffice to say Apple doesn't have anything remote close to AD and Group Policy. Apple also doesn't even do servers any more, leaving any Apple Server admin up a creek without a paddle.

I agree with you, but I'm not talking about the future of the world. I'm talking about investors' valuation and perception of two giants right now.

I'm pretty sure back in the 80s most investors backed mainframes, and the ones that backed PCs are the ones that profited greatly.

And it's not that these investors are dumb - for every "rebellious" success there are probably 100 failures.

Companies buy out other companies. That is what happens. Adobe acquired Photoshop back in 1995.

Stop pretending Linux is a viable option for everyone given the lack of software/hardware support. I am anything but unique in having undersupported if not completely unspported hardware.

It is a rather huge deal, mainly PS/AE/Flash/Adobe Reader (PDF)-wise.
SO I heard MS wanted to make native .pdf support in windows 8, didn't know this is how they'd do it xD!

Maybe if companies got their heads out their rear ends and opened up to the open source community things would be better.
