The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which advisor Charly Travers discusses topics across the investing world.
As owners of Microsoft shares, we at Million Dollar Portfolio are pleased that the company continues to grow its operating income at a double-digit rate and that it will set an all-time company record for free cash flow this fiscal year. But the Windows 8 launch earlier this year is the most important event for the company since Windows 95. Will Windows 8 allow Microsoft to burst onto the tablet scene to challenge Apple's dominance? Or is it too ambitious a platform that will frustrate users reliant on a keyboard and mouse?
The emergence of mobile computing isn't a new story, but there's still plenty of opportunity for savvy investors to cash in on this once-in-a-lifetime trend.
