Microsoft Beats PC Decline – But for How Long?

Microsoft 0

DavidGilbert99 writes "The PC industry is in terminal decline according to some, and it's hard to argue with them as sales continue to drop as people chose tablets to replace their laptops and desktops.
So with the decline of the PC, surely we will see the decline of Microsoft, the company which benefited most from the consumer PC explosion.
Fewer new PCs mean smaller Windows and Office sales and so the end of Microsoft right?

Wrong. A look at Microsoft's latest results show that it is a diverse and flexible company with fingers in many pies and enough cash in the bank to sustain whatever the PC market may throw at it."
