Microsoft: after Bill Gates

Bill Gates and fellow Microsoft founders, 1978

Microsoft is in a busy period of software updates following the release of Vista, the latest version of the Windows desktop operating system, Office 2007 and the Longhorn server technology.

The company is also facing new challenges as Linux gains in popularity and Google offers an alternative approach to software. Changes Microsoft makes will affect all IT users.

The company also faces the prospect of Bill Gates retiring this year in July 2008, so all eyes are on the company’s ongoing software strategy.
