Microsoft When Microsoft releases its SQL Server 2005 database on Nov. 7, it will have been five years since the last version debuted. If Windows Vista arrives as scheduled next fall, it too will follow its predecessor by five years. That's a pretty long time to make customers wait for a new release. Too long, concedes Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer. "We just can't make our customers wait three or four years for the things which should have been on more interim cycles." Elsewhere, Bill Gates said that even though Google is Microsoft's biggest competitor, MS is not afraid of Google.
