Microsoft is still the largest provider of software, period. Valuation and market dominance do not correlate either, Apple has never held a majority in terms of software or hardware, period.OK, good point.
I'm just saying that leading the market at one point doesn't mean it will be like that forever. Microsoft was on top for a long time and Apple looked doomed, now Apple is the most valued company in the entire world.
Apple was doomed then becasue they lost Jobs and now Apple is doomed again because once again they've lost jobs.
Past behaviour is the best indicator of future performance. Why do you think wall street gets so uppity about metric "beats"
