Microsoft No. 49 on Fortune 500

Microsoft is America's 49th largest corporation, dropping one spot from a year ago in the Fortune 500 list.

Microsoft is America's 49th largest corporation, dropping one spot from a year ago in the Fortune 500 list. Microsoft is the top-ranked software company in the list, with revenues of more than $44 billion. Revenues were up 11.3 percent over last year, when it ranked No. 48, and profits were up 2.8 percent from 2006.

Several IT-related companies ranked above Microsoft, but none are primarily software companies. Hewlett-Packard headed the list, coming in at No. 14 with $91.6 billion in revenues; IBM, right behind at No. 15 with $91.4 billion; and Dell placed 34th, at $57 billion.

Other notable companies following Microsoft include Intel, No. 62 on the list with $35.3 billion; No. 77 Cisco, $28.4 billion; No. 121 Apple, $19.3 billion. Interestingly, no other software company cracked the top 150. Oracle came in at No. 167, with $14.3 billion, and after that the drop is precipitous, with Symantec and Computer Associates (CA) earning spots No. 515 and 547, respectively.
