Webroot Software for $30 Vs. Free Microsoft Software

February 23, 2005

Given that the $108M invested into Webroot is likely to be the biggest VC deal in all of 2005, we plan to provide frequent updates on the company’s progress.

But now Microsoft has announced that it is making its anti-spyware application free. If Webroot was a publicly-traded company, we might expect them to lose half their market cap on this news. How quickly can the world’s biggest eat into the market share of the world’s best by giving their software away? Better start some fancy dancing Webroot.
