Microsofts Challenges in 2006


Bill Gates is betting big on 2006. After years of development and hype, Microsoft will launch its biggest lineup of products ever while also challenging Sony’s dominance of the video game market and Google’s lead in online media.

The world’s largest software maker will ship two critical products: Windows Vista, its next-generation operating system; and Office 12, a package that includes updated versions of Word, Outlook, PowerPoint, and Excel.

Amid all that, Microsoft will have to see if its attempts to streamline the company’s organizational structure have been successful. RED HERRING | Microsoft’s Challenges in 2006
