This is old, well-documented MS behaviour:

1. competitor ships product

2. Microsoft announces they are working on the same, but more expensive and with "Microsoft" written on it

3. Easily impressed PHBs decide to wait for the Microsoft one because nobody ever got fired for buying Microsoft and what's even better the MS salesman might give them a free pen or - if they get really lucky - a key chain
