My two cents:
When it relates to browsers, I think MS is in trouble. If you look at the trend in our industry, I am sure you already know that when you are using certain sites or applications, it's clear that developers who have a vested interest in their product will be somewhat bias in their approach, for example: Adwords working more effectively on Chrome vs. IE. We started experiencing this at the beginning of the year, coincidence? I don't think so. Developers have gotten a lot more strategic in developing certain sites and apps to work better with certain browsers, so therefore yes I think IE is going to eventually dwindle in users.
As far as MS becoming a servicing company? Well, I think most people still use a PC and Laptop to do their work. I still dont feel tablets are there yet. We will see.
