First of they would need to make Python a strategic platform for 
corporations, so that it was used practically everywhere on Windows.

Then it would have the powerbase to change the lanuage and make an 
incompatible version that they could control.

As far as I can see C## has that role for them. So I don't see how 
Python should be in any danger.
