"Geoffrey James, an analyst and writer who covers Microsoft,
says it's business as usual for Microsoft on the desktop, despite
the potential threat Linux presents."
"'Microsoft intends to move forward with a single operating
system strategy and intends to put a version of Windows 2000
everywhere,' said James. 'As far as Linux goes, Microsoft seems to
see it as little more than noise on the desktop.'"
"Yet, James says it's a different story when it comes to the
server. Linux has the reputation of being a robust and stable
platform for server applications, and this may present a
significant thorn in Microsoft's side."
