Steve Ballmer said on Thursday that Microsoft will launch a number of new versions of Windows and Office. This includes an enterprise version of the upcoming Windows Vista and a premium version of Office 12. Both versions will be more pricey than the regular versions and the company also plans a new Premium Cleint Access License for both Windows and Office.
Microsoft will also grow this anchor business, and sees a growth opportunity on the Web server front. In addition, the company barely plays in the HPC market today, which is mostly a Linux play. There are also opportunities in database and e-mail, and Microsoft has gained share against both Oracle and Lotus with its Notes product.
