Micro$oft and GNUgle $et to Wage Arm$ Race
,----[ Quote ]
| Bill Gates, the chairman of Microsoft, described Google in an interview
| late last year as a worthy adversary, a company to test Microsoft's
| mettle. "This is hypercompetition, make no mistake," Mr. Gates observed.
| The rivalry between the companies is growing more combative, and with
| good reason: the outcome is likely to shape the future of competition
| in computing and the way people use information technology.
