Microsoft Media coverage focuses on Microsoft's competition with Google, but Chairman Bill Gates sees IBM - not the Web search leader - as its biggest challenger. "People tend to get over-focused on one of our competitors. We've always seen that," Gates said, comparing the potential threat of Google's search capabilities to past competitors such as Internet browser Netscape and Sun Microsystems' Java programming language.

IBM Rival?

Competition with IBM? I would think Microsoft should be more worried about Apple. With Apple changing to the X86 platform, it would be very easy for them to bring OS X into direct competition with Windows
