Microsoft and Gateway

Microsoft has settled with Gateway. Microsoft is required to give Gateway 150 million dollars for the next four years, in return Gateway will release any claims against the company. How do you think this will help Gateways image? Even though Microsoft has stated that they have no favoritism with Gateway, because of this litigation will consumers find a greater demand with Gateway? Gateway stated that they look forward to greater collaboration s with Microsoft in the future. How do you feel this will affect the demand for Gateway computers in the future, as compared to their lag in the past?

Gateway's demand is sure to suffer. The company has been slowing quite rapidly, and this may be a last effort to make money to try to make a return to the market. I do not think it will happen because they have already lost their edge. Gateway is done.

I couldn't link to the article, so I don't have much to say on this one.
