Don Dodge on The Next Big Thing: Since when does growing $4 Billion a year = Dead?

Microsoft's Don Dodge plays defense on the latest "Microsoft is dead" meme blip; see the post for extensive details. 

Paul Graham, founder of Y-Combinator, declares Microsoft is dead. Paul must be living in a cave somewhere, or drunk on the Web 2.0 Kool-Aid. Paul obviously wrote his headline to grab attention and attract links to his blog. TechMeme shows that he succeeded.

For the record, Microsoft is growing revenues at over $4 Billion a year and is on track for $50 Billion this year. Since when does growing $4 Billion a year equal DEAD? If that is dead I know a lot of companies that would like to be so dead.
