Financing Terms Worry Microsoft Partners

,----[ Quote ]
| Microsoft Corp. is tightening the requirements on financing partner sales – a 
| move some partners say will be hard to swallow, especially in the sour 
| economic environment.  
| 
| The software company is requiring that all deals it finances for its indirect 
| sales partners include a minimum of 35 percent of Microsoft’s software or 
| services. Previously, financed deals only needed to include a single 
| Microsoft product to qualify.

| Microsoft, the world’s most valuable company, declared a profit
| of $4.5 billion in 1998; when the cost of options awarded that year, plus the
| change in the value of outstanding options, is deducted, the firm made a loss
| of $18 billion, according to Smithers.
