Other ladders agree, e.g.:

Apple has biggest impact on world consumers: survey

,----[ Quote ]
| Microsoft, the world's largest software maker was also a winner, but it
| received the dubious honor of the brand most readers wanted to argue with,
| and the one they most wanted to revamp. Voted into second place in the
| category was brand USA.  


Google leaps, Microsoft drops in brand value

,----[ Quote ]
| Google's brand name value jumped from 20th place last year to 10th in 2008,
| according to the latest version of an annual study that ranks the best
| brands, with only four technology companies ahead of it on the list.


Microsoft’s credibility turning to junk while Linux revenue grows

,----[ Quote ]
| Sweeping changes are needed in Microsoft’s go-to-market approach, and it may
| find more success by creating products like Live Writer, which found a huge
| following right away. Continuing on its current path, the company will
| continue to destroy its credibility and build animosity with users looking
| for quality products on their terms.


Google 'UK's top consumer brand'

,----[ Quote ]
| Google also topped a poll of "superbrands" as judged by professionals earlier
| this year.


Google reputation hits top spot

,----[ Quote ]
| Google has finally managed to push Microsoft from its top spot.
| The Vole actually fell to tenth place in the annual Harris Interactive
| Reputation Quotient poll, but overall, the tech sector did outstandingly well
| this year.


Microsoft Plummets, Retail Falls While Beauty Gains in CoreBrand 2007 Brand
Power Rankings

,----[ Quote ]
| The annual "CoreBrand Brand Power 100" Branding Index(R) of 1,200 US
| corporations ranks Coca-Cola Company and Johnson & Johnson at #1 and #2
| respectively, unchanged since 2004. Meanwhile, Microsoft's corporate brand
| declined in stunning fashion over the past four years, falling from 11 in
| 2004 to 59 in 2007 Microsoft, a decline of 48 places!    


,----[ Quote ]
| Would you believe... that Microsoft has dropped down to #86 within the
| Fortune Best Places to Work survey? That's down from #50 in 2007 and #42 in
| 2006. Like a rock. In a bad way. And who is #1 for two years in a row? Grab
| that chair and give it a big effen toss in the air to Google! Toot! They get
| bigger and they're still #1.
