You will find that some folks run RM rankers for companies they like and, how shall we say, omit MSFT. Obviuosly, including it is not going to help, tho some folks stand up ok under the assault.

Personally, there's a middle ground. I include them where they are a major player: OS, apps, and now embedded and wireless apps which seem to be a major new front for them (IMO smartly). I dont always include them against yahoo as their online ventures seem to lag in corp interest of late - rumor had them either tracked or spun off last year but it didnt go. Perhaps they avoid the area to avoid nicking off AOL any more while the DOJ thing is under trial. Tho yahoo would likely stand up fine given their extremely strong financials.

Just my quick 2%, cheers,
