Editorial Reviews

Even the harshest critics will confess to a grudging admiration for what Microsoft and its driven founder, Bill Gates, have accomplished. It's no exaggeration to say the company is already a business legend. From a tiny startup to the controlling force in computer software in little more than a decade. So controlling, in fact, that those critics lined up to take shots, accusing Gates and company of trying to destroy everyone in competition with them. So competitors sued, the Justice Department sought a million dollar daily fines and states brought anti-trust actions. Microsoft's answer? Keep growing. With a virtual monopoly on desktop operating systems, they also have an overwhelming share of the software market for office computing. They're fighting to control access to the Internet, they've bought into cable systems and with MSNBC they've even gone into the news business. Eventually, you realize whether you like Microsoft is beside the point. They're like a technological typhoon, you find a way to live with them or drown. Reason enough for ABC News to travel to Seattle to see what a day in the life of Microsoft is really like.
