Flash - I think Steve Jobs has successfully killed that.
Unitiy - Blows!
Web browsers? with the advent of non-IE browsers, years ago, we all have the same access and ability to submit RFE's (request for enhancements). If you don't like the current state of your browser, drop a suggestion in the box, then get all of your friends to vote for it; simple.
Outlook: die! die! die! - but what would business, that has grown so comfortable with it, use to take it's place? This is an OS community blunder that only Mozilla Thunderbird is taking seriously.

Consumer-grade antivirus; this one would take care of itself if MS could make an OS that wasn't built on a swamp of insecurity.

We've got new features to push!
