Microsoft and Apple, bitter rivals, try to save the desktop operating system.

Can two bitter rivals save the desktop operating system? In the battle between Apple and Microsoft, Bertrand Serlet and Steven Sinofsky are the field generals in charge of competing efforts to insure that the personal computer's basic software stays relevant in an increasingly Web-centric world. The two men are marshaling their software engineers for the next encounter, sometime in 2009, when a new generation of Macintosh and Windows systems is due. Their challenge will be to avoid refighting the last war - and finding themselves outflanked by new competitors.

Investors reacted by selling shares and pushing the two major stock exchanges sharply lower. The Shanghai Composite Index plunged 6.5 percent to close at 4,053.09. The Shenzhen Composite Index dropped 7.2 percent to close at 1,199.45.
