John-Mark Tucker, an IT manager at Red Dot Corp. in Seattle, said he was flattered to see a business with 500 employees get invited to the same events on Microsoft's campus in Redmond, Wash., as companies such as

XPS will be supported in Windows Vista,

Microsoft billionaire Bill Gates last night gave $258m (£145m) to the fight against malaria, branding the rich world's efforts in tackling the disease "a disgrace".

The grant is equivalent to more than three-quarters of global spending on research into the disease last year, according to a report published simultaneously by the Malaria Research and Development Alliance. Malaria causes an estimated 500m bouts of illness a year, kills an African child every 30 seconds, and costs an estimated $12bn a year in lost income.Read More...

WASHINGTON - The federal judge overseeing Microsoft Corp.'s business practices scolded the company Wednesday over a proposal to force manufacturers to tether iPod-like devices to Microsoft's own music player software.

TEL AVIV—Microsoft Corp. Chairman Bill Gates said on Wednesday the software giant faced growing competition from companies in China and India but, for now, the strength in those countries lies in software services.

A U.S. District Court judge monitoring Microsoft Corp.'s antitrust settlement with the U.S. government scolded company lawyers today because the company recently announced a lengthy delay in a project to improve technical documentation for its communications protocols.

But anyone looking for a happy surprise when the world's biggest software maker reports results Thursday may have to wait.
