because, you can't see very clearly what's happening in the real world, and especially, not in Microsoft's world.
No company gets to be the size of a Microsoft by just copying and using trial and error and releasing "beta" with the hope of corrections in later versions.
That's basically your perception of how Microsoft operates, but, Microsoft is still the biggest technology company around, even if Apple is overvalued with a higher market cap.
But, Microsoft is a much more diversified company than Apple or Google or any other company, and they didn't luck into that, or just throw things at a wall in the hopes of having something stick. No company can be successful with that kind of "research". Microsoft, in fact, has more research happening within it's walls than Apple or Google, and some will succeed and some will fail, for success and failure is something that occurs at any company. Apple and Google have had their successes and failures, and so has Microsoft.
So, stop using that clouded glass you're using, and start looking at reality.
