MSFT is trading at $19.97. It will go up, it will go down. That's what it does. IBM is also down about 45%

MSN is really tearing down MS profits.I think they will scrap more of it as job losses get higher in this bad economy.The 360 division however is just fine

Not really, the MSN team is doing pretty well, they are deeply rooted in the Internet service provider scene in North America as well as Encarta, Ad Center, etc which are all successful.
