Four Hurdles for Microsoft

Paul Larson on The Motley Fool: Four Hurdles for Microsoft:

  1. The European Union is borrowing a page from the Justice Department's book and taking a tough look at the company's competitive practices.
  2. The fact that Microsoft was deemed a monopoly and violated the Sherman Antitrust Act has not changed, and there is still an open-ended legal question concerning what exactly will happen to Microsoft.
  3. The economy has made computer users much more resistant to software “churn,” and it remains to be seen if Windows XP is enough of a step forward to get people to open their wallets.
  4. How can you watch Ballmer on stage and not want to short the stock?
