Announcer: Welcome Steve Ballmer to the stage at CES 2012!
Steve Ballmer: I would like to use the time at CES to announce my retirement from Microsoft effective immediately. That is all.
They got rid of the racist comment, but I'm guessing that was more "automated" then actually have a moderator do it. But yeah, the SPAM lives on. But there again, Tom's site is full of SPAM (advertising) so it's sorta hypocritical of them to remove it

People get excited when Apple does the exact same thing....so, what's the issue??
On the web client front about 80% Microsoft, on the Server Side about 66%, on the Mobile side about 9%. Given the massive expansion and market around mobil computing, I'd say Microsoft is a pretty insignificant player.
[citation][nom]hanrak[/nom]About the spam, has anyone here for one second thought that toms aint doin nothing about it because we put up with it and just vote it down and doin the job for them? Im voting them up from now on.[/citation]
Well since nobody seems to report them what do you expect? They always get removed pretty quickly after being reported, but if you don't report it then don't complain
[citation][nom]V8VENOM[/nom]Think again junior ... your facts (or did you just make that number up) are WAY OFF.http/en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Usage [...] ng_systemsOn the web client front about 80% Microsoft, on the Server Side about 66%, on the Mobile side about 9%.

So they dominate 2 of the 3 markets you mentioned, and then you say they're insignificant?
