After its lost decade, Microsoft has an uphill, virtually impossible climb ahead of it.

Despite a lot of work, Bing has failed to make much headway against Google. 

Windows dominance of the desktop and laptop operating environments has not carried over to mobile devices where Android commands nearly 80% market share  followed by Apple at about 15%, leaving Microsoft with a paltry 3- 4%. IDC forecasts that these shares are flattening out and will remain mostly unchanged over the next four years or so. http://goo.gl/G09iwG

Microsoft's foray into the mobile market, with its own tablet, was several years before the iPad made its appearance. However it failed to make any impact at that time and none of its mobile devices since has made a splash.

Other than continued dominance of the desktop / laptop market with Windows 10, it's difficult to foresee Microsoft making a significant dent in any of the other major markets. Also, with plans of offering free upgrades of Windows 10 to Windows 8 users at least, revenue from Windows 10 license sales is going to take a hit. 
 
MS in an "incredible position to seize new growth this year” (Satya Nadella).
Incredible as in "non-credible"?
Google and Apple are light-years ahead as Microsoft recommits to its core products.
