Linux Surge Looms as Threat to Microsoft

,----[ Quote ]
| "Our Linux and Identity businesses have the greatest potential to continue to 
| expand operating margins," CEO Ron Hovsepian said in a statement, "and we 
| plan to attain profitability within these businesses no later than 12-18 
| months from today, barring unforeseen circumstances."    



Microsoft value?

| What I wont quote is the rather long disclaimer at the beginning.  This is no
| insult to Blevdog but rather (IMO) a sad testament to the world we live in.
| A simple two lines of “these views are my own and not of my employer” would
| have sufficed, but instead of that we get a long winded disclaimer.  Ill let
| you form your own opinions on that, but to me it suggests “cave quid dicis,
| quando, et cui” has never been more relevant.  As I said before I do not
| believe this is any fault of Blevdog.
| So lets move onto the “meat” it was very nice (and interesting) to hear a
| little about Blevdogs experience/education, I think that says alot about him
| if he is willing to be very clear on what he has/hasnt done.  I hope readers
| here remember that whilst there have been allegations on the net of dubious
| practices by Microsoft, Blevdog is a real person.


Microsoft slashes rates for temp workers, blaming bad economy

| workers -- and cut by 15 percent the target billing rate for future temporary
| work.


Microsoft reaffirms grim outlook for year
