Microsoft Seen Stronger Following Ruling - Experts
Posted: 02-Nov-2002 [Source: Reuters]

[Many experts agree Friday's ruling has served to strengthen Microsoft and positioned it to gain dominance in other areas such as handhelds and streaming media.]

by Elinor Mills Abreu, San Francisco -- "The federal court decision on Friday endorsing a settlement that closes the U.S. government's landmark antitrust case against Microsoft Corp. will allow the software giant to leverage its dominance in computer operating systems to move into other markets, experts and rivals said.

That is good news for Microsoft's allies, such as Intel Corp., Siebel Systems Inc. and others, but bad news for the raft of companies including Oracle Corp, Sun Microsystems Inc. SUNW.O and RealNetworks Inc struggling to compete with Microsoft, they said.

"Microsoft lost every battle and they won the war. That's what happened here," said Shane Greenstein, technology business professor at the Kellogg Graduate School of Management. "The lesson everyone learned here is just stay out of Microsoft's way."
