Is that the best you can say? C'mon Redneck, be a little more intelligent than that?

I already did, and provided the link for you: Again, a little more research and intelligence on your behalf goes a long way.

Two companies will left standing: Microsoft, because they have enough money to spend without expectations of profit, and RIM- because they make profits on hardware

There will be less competition, actually. With GoodLink dead and Visto too because of OpenSource and freeware solutions and free of charge or very cheap proprietary products from Microsoft, where will be competition coming from?
Time will tell but judging from your previous comments, I feel pretty safe wagering against you...
