Microsoft Microsoft's CEO Steve Ballmer had some interesting things to say yesterday about which companies Microsoft sees as its competitors in the client operating system space. You'd think Apple was their number one competitor - and you'd be wrong. Microsoft sees two other competitors as their primary adversaries.

This is an interesting comment for Steve Ballmer to make. Not long ago the bottom line was that users couldn't or wouldn't use a platform where MS Office was not present.

Now then, Office is Microsofts crown jewels - financially speaking. Users going to Linux despite the lack of Office, must really be worrying.

Obviously OpenOffice is doing better than we suspected.
