Well, you asked who makes better software than Microsoft, and I gave a few examples of the top of my head where they make poor software. I also said they have a few humdinger cash-cows (i.e. Windows, Office, Xbox and Azure).

Even their OS is limited to desktop use almost exclusively, and that's because that's what came with the PC or that's what corporates buy.

When users where given a choice to buy devices with or without Windows on them, they rejected Windows almost universally. On the desktop users get no choice. Everywhere else they chose something other than Windows.
