    Organizing all the worlds knowledge, no matter how it was generated or how it was prepared for input to humans or retention by electronic media or the subconscious is the unifying principle. Calling Knowledge just search by another name is a gross oversimplification.

    Cloud services, thin clients and humongous servers with memory ,hadoop and client supporting AI is not on their product list at present. I expect Google to be running Pivot Tables of 1000000 row by 500 column ‘excel like spreadsheets’ without the EXCEL, long before MS merges the last enterprise server into the net.

    It is, and that was kind of purposeful, because “Knowledge” is a big concept for people to get. The point is, Microsoft doesn’t even have someone in charge of search as a top ranking exec, focused on just that as a major strategic area. Google does — not just search, but Knowledge overall.
