Verizon is expected to announce that it has picked Microsoft as a primary software platform for its fiber-to-the-home networks reports Light Reading.

For Microsoft, this further establishes its dominance in the North American consumer video software market, as it’s already scored big wins for commercial deployments with SBC Communications Inc. (NYSE: SBC – message board) and Comcast Corp. as well as a system trial at BellSouth Corp.

The big question is will Microsoft deliver the product on time, without bugs and will it be unhackable. History says otherwise, but then even Barons of Redmond can change!
