Microsoft's Hopper Is Full

At its financial-analysts meeting last week, Microsoft gave an overview of its development projects, which will be fueled in this fiscal year by $6.9 billion in research and development spending. Over the next 12 months, the vendor plans to release its Office 2003 suite; an upgrade to its Tablet PC operating system; the first beta release of Longhorn, an overhaul of the Windows operating system; and an upgrade to its customer-relationship management application.
