We got it too but it cost $US65 with Tshirt/cap (made in NZ!)
I like the new product and it will drive sales. That has already started for us. We will be bundling it with our new PC's this month. This should be a good year for PC sales as the old 386 customers of 4-5 years ago are now returning for upgrades or replacements along with a lot of early 486 adopters. They all want the latest and Intels MMX chip is hot.

BTW Sal, Microsoft doesn't pay dividends so how do I impute a dividend cover which my model requires ? Any thoughts ?

Hey Roger,

Information about Windows 97 is available at winmag.com. It will probably be released mid year, with betas released sporatically starting in February. Many of the improvements are currently available via Microsoft's web site. Get the Powertools file. The 97 version of Windows will probably just be like Office 97, with most of the improvements involving the Internet and better collaboration features. I see the only real advantage of Win 97 is if the consumer has a dedicated web connection, otherwise you will probably have to leave the computer on hogging up bandwith and phone bills, if you don't have unlimited access. This could potentially cause a huge bandwith problem, even worse than we currently have, who knows, we will have to wait and see what companies like Microsoft and Cisco do to relieve the bandwith problem.

Getting onto bigger and better things...

Microsoft stands at $100 as of teh time I write this note. Anyone see a stock split in the future? Say...around $130 or $140?
At the rate the markets are going, this should be in about 4 months or so....
Anyone?

Certainly by the end of the year, but my guess is again at 150 to 160. The only thing that can stop it is government interference, but I don't want to bet my life against that.

Anti Trust nonsense, like the interference that made the INTUIT buyout too much hassle. Boy, that would have been something. You probably know this but let me say it anyway for those who don't, Microsoft didn't give a hoot for Quicken's budgeting, Bill was after those electronic banking contracts.

Robert:

I agree with you that the Java issue is anybody's guess, but "most of the world would like to see their dominence disrupted and toppled"?

Certainly that part of the world that trys to compete with MSFT, which is growing as MSFT expands into new markets, but there are still far more who ride their coattails and cheer them on. And rightfully so, because they have done more to advance the U.S. as a dominant force in world computing than IBM has done in the last 20 years. Without MSFT we would all be using PS2's with proprietary this and proprietary that.

Ya know what's really exciting? The information age has not finished forming yet, there's more to come. We're going to have Web terminals in residential kitchens that read us our mail as we fix that first cup of coffee. We need a strong leader to forge ahead and set standards where there were none previously compatible with everything else. That's the real bridge that we are building to the 21st century.
