Why is it FAANG and not FAAMG?

I'm at Google, so I don't care much for either Netflix or Microsoft, but I'm curious as to why Netflix is included in this list and Microsoft isn't? It seems that Microsoft has high enough comp, many more engineers and a lot more cool companies (like Zillow) were started by Microsoft graduates than those of Netflix

    Isn’t FAANG about growth for investors? Microsoft just recently started growing again.

    Really don't care. Microsoft can't pay my TC. Use whatever acronym you like.
