NEW YORK (

TheStreet

) -- The technology stock predictions for 2010 are out, revealing a competing roster of expected winners picked by

TheStreet

and

MarketWatch

.

The lists are wildly divergent, with the biggest difference of opinion over Microsoft, which TheStreet's Scott Moritz considers a potential winner while MarketWatch's John Dvorak includes among likely losers.

Moritz defends Microsoft, saying the new Windows 7 operating system is already off to an encouraging start and may prove to be a standout on the cell phone front.

Dvorak pans Microsoft, saying that "once the bloom is off Windows 7 and the stock tails off I cannot see the company doing much more than squandering its cash reserve while continuing to milk the cash cow."
