Also, IE may be the one product that never really deserved it, but just piggybacked on Windows and users left in droves once decent (more secure) alternatives and standards became popular." Microsoft stockholders probably don’t feel too badly about the Ballmer legacy overall, though — browser choice is a pretty small arm of the octopus.
