    Easily topple a kingdom while difficult to keep it

    For Microsoft, it is easy to topple the old kingdom of software, but not easy to keep the power of new kingdom in its hand.

    ------------------------------------
    I'd like to know if there is an idiom in English to express the meaning of the title.

    It is just to early in the day for you to function - after all you are a night owl. :wink:

    It is easy to take something from someone else but difficult to hang on to it.
    You can take over a company by various means. Will you be able to keep it and have it prosper?
    You can get the perfect job but will you be successful at it?
