The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which technology editor and analyst Andrew Tonner and industrials editor and analyst Brendan Byrnes discuss topics across the investing world.

In this extension of the Fool's "Should You Love This Dow Stock?" series, Andrew and Brendan turn their attention to software heavyweight Microsoft. Microsoft is one of the best-performing Dow components year-to-date, largely as a result of several forward-looking moves by the company. And though it certainly has some positive momentum providing a nice tailwind -- and the still-dominant foothold in the software arena -- the company faces an uphill battle to entrench itself in the next generation of technology. Listen in to see what Andrew thinks of Microsoft's road ahead.
