Legal Microsoft told a European Union court on Monday that regulators had completely misunderstood thriving competition in the software market in issuing a landmark antitrust ruling against the giant U.S. company. But an internal Microsoft memo presented by a coalition of critical companies suggested founder Bill Gates was told that a strategy used to crush the rival Netscape browser could also take down the leader in streaming media, RealNetworks' RealPlayer.

Which part of the word MONOPOLY don't (some of) you understand?

You keep saying that also linux distro makers and Apple should be prosecuted as well since they also bundle some applications with their OS.
They don't have a monopoly, thats why.

Why in god's name should you defend MS? If there was no such thing as the Mozilla foundation, we were all forced to use IE 6.0... Heck, I bet MS would bundle IE 6.0 with Vista. No competition, no innovation.
Imagine IE 6 being a final release ;)
