The assault on Microsoft. (BBC)

Story from the BBC: The assault on software giant Microsoft

Supposed to be part one of a two-part series. Examines Linux, OpenOffice.org, the GIMP (surprise!), Gmail and Firefox. Also discussed are the dominance of Apple’s iPod and Nokia’s bid to push MS out of the mobile software business.

True, Microsoft is under attack from every single area of technology it’s got its finger in. A quote in the article says, “Companies are not afraid of competing with Microsoft anymore”.

Interestingly, Gates has tried out Firefox too, but thinks it’s “just another browser”. No justification.
