Breaking up Microsoft

When Microsoft finally resigns itself to being broken up, I recommend that they form the following two companies: Windows.com and Office.com. They already own the windows.com doman name, and I imagine that they could obtain the office.com one for an insignificant sum of money. Thanks to their brilliant marketing machine, most users of Office and Windows don't actually know that they are Microsoft products anyway. (Overheard on the phone to an office administrator: "You mean Windows NT is a Microsoft product? I didn't know that!" I swear this actually happened.) I would like to browse business.office.com for Word, Excel, etc, and developer.office.com for the MSDN / Visual Studio products.
