Actually, last week would have been a good time to buy a put, just out
of the money. Everybody was so sure that Microsoft was immune, that
OEMs would just cave in and continue forking over $20 Billion/year
when sales were in the toilet. They assumed that businesses would cut
20% of their staff to pay Microsoft their $20 billion.
Instead, Microsoft down 17% because OSS has created some actual
competition that forced Microsoft to sell a bunch of XP licenses at
prices that were reasonable - about 1/2 to 1/3 the price of Vista
Many corporations have decided that if Microsoft won't support XP,
then they won't keep paying Microsoft. Same goes for Office 2000,
Office XP, and Office 2003.
That Microsoft tried to demand their blood money when companies were
hurting so bad they had to cut business critical costs such as
marketing, sales, and even delivery staff, and risk losing them to
competitors or having those people become competitors, when Microsoft
wasn't giving any real productivity gains.
