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.

I'd add to that that Microsoft, as far as I know, still has a lot of Apple stock (!). When Apple does well, MS is happy too.


Actually, I'm sure there was a Fortune article some time ago that said MS sold their Apple shares in 2003, once the initial 5 year deal was complete.

The list of major shareholders seems to confirm it. No mention of MS:
