http://www.redherring.com/insider/2000/0217/tech-microsoft021700.htmlHere's an excerpt:On the eve of one of Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT)'s most significant product introductions, a dozen venture capitalists sat around a room scratching their heads. The question before them: "Is Microsoft dead?" It wasn't a joke. The VCs, who had gathered Tuesday at a private function to discuss investing trends, had been arguing about the one stock that investors should hold for the next five years. Everyone agreed on Cisco Systems (Nasdaq: CSCO). They haggled over Amazon.com (Nasdaq: AMZN) and eBay (Nasdaq: EBAY). But the company that wrought so much havoc in the marketplace that the government took it to court wasn't mentioned. Not once.
