As always, Lance, nice work. Looking through the results this time, I was again struck by how much difference the choice of competitors makes. Broadcom, for example, runs from 34 to 50 depending on competitors!

I was then struck by the case of Microsoft. It is a very common competitor, but it is only ever ranked against AOL, Oracle and Sun. Here is a list of the companies that include MSFT as a competitor, ordered by RM score:

Yahoo!
Adobe
AOL
Oracle
Wind River Systems
Sun
Palm Computing
3Com
IBM

I may have missed one or two, but my point is that MSFT is only ever ranked against the 2nd, 3rd and 5th highest scoring competitors. So, I was wondering if one of the MSFT-holders might run the ranker against Yahoo! and Adobe and see if that changes Softy's score.

Any takers?
