Microsoft's Office Push Scrutinized
Microsoft is under EU scrutiny over its push to get the Office file format ratified as an international standard.
這次雖然失敗而其格式無法列為國際標準 可是爭取過程動用太多利誘 所以要"徹查"之


On Saturday, the two men again failed to reach an agreement on a fair price, and Mr. Ballmer walked away.
The decision also showed Mr. Ballmer’s analytic discipline; he had his number, and he wasn’t going further.
For most of his career, Mr. Ballmer has been overshadowed by Mr. Gates. Their friendship started in their days as students at Harvard University; their business partnership began when Mr. Ballmer joined Microsoft.
Though he became chief executive in 2000, Mr. Ballmer has typically been cast as a marketing dynamo: tireless, hyperkinetic and a booming orator, renowned for his uninhibited performances at Microsoft sales meetings. But Mr. Ballmer, colleagues say, has a deep mastery of strategy and finance. He is a math whiz who as a student scored a perfect 800 on the SAT math exam.
