ABSTRACT
The article discusses the crisis facing Microsoft Corp. as the software giant begins to experience staggering growth patterns as of October 2005. Microsoft is slowing down. It is bigger, more lumbering and less profitable than it was years ago. Its sales are up 73% in years, but profits are up only 30%. Payroll has doubled in the last six years. In the fiscal year just ended, sales rose only 8%, the first time the company has ever reported less than double-digit growth.
