One of the main shareholder complaints is that Microsoft is spending too much on its weakening consumer business instead of its enterprise customers, which are the company’s biggest source of revenue. Ballmer’s recent restructuring of Microsoft is indicative of his continued push in the consumer space, even though the company doesn’t have a large market share in mobile phones or tablets.
I'm surprisingly torn on this. On the one hand, their first party consumer oriented products seem to have been a massive flop so far. On the other hand, being almost solely focused on business users for the past decade doesn't seem to have really promoted innovation much either
