Paul Graham wrote an article a few years ago that sums it up. Microsoft doesn't matter anymore.
While the PC you bought for Christmas may have Windows on it, all of the software that you use that came with it runs on any other OS and, most everything most people do, they do through the browser or they use a mobile device where MS is still virtually non-existant. You don't need Windows anymore.
As far as IE10 goes, I still have to write code hacks on code that works in any other browser just to make it work in IE10 because it's non-existant or poorly supported. IE10 is better than IE9 but that's nothing to brag about. It's still the worst browser on the planet for coding.
