Yet another example of "It must be true -- I read it on the Internet."
However, annual reports are now also on the Web so it's easy to check the
facts. The IBM and Microsoft sites both have financial data and annual
reports. The most recent annual reports are for the year 2000:

                                          IBM         Microsoft
                                          ----          ----------
Number of employees         316,303      39,170

Gross revenue                    $88.39        $22.95
                                           billion         billion
