The conference are for resellers only ....
Well, let me rephrase that ... anyone can go, but only the resellers
can get the "real" copy (as oppose to the one 90 day trial version)
A friend is a reseller ( I do consulting for him) we both received a "free"
copy of Office Pro 97 ....

No admission charge ...

Find a friend from COMP USA or Best Buy ... They will tell you about it ....

They also raffle out many other software ... and hardware (IntelliRAT,
Joysticks, and MS keyboard) I think everyone received a free t-shirt ...

If this is not bad enough, MSFT have Babes doing the presentation to
tease all the gumps at the show ... Believe me, you will feel like you are
in Revenge of the Nerds part VI ...

Boy, I shouldn't butt in here (Hi Sal) but I just stumbled in on this and I got to wonder:

"They said Microsoft's current market capitalization adjusted for inflation is what IBM's was in 1951. From that point, over the next 9 years IBM went up 16 times in value."

Microsoft's current market cap is $130 billion or so, #4 overall and pretty close to the current #1, GE at $170 billion. Do you guys really think Microsoft will be worth $2 trillion in 9 years? The company has had a great run, but it's a large cap stock now. All the new worlds Mr. Bill has in his sights have established players who might be a little harder to roll over that lotus and wordperfect.

Cheers, Dan.

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?

Roger
