"If what you said was true, then MS wouldn't have been tried for violating the Sherman Act, but in fact it was. "

Actually, it is exactly like I said. To be tried under the Sherman Act it is enough to *try* to monopolize or otherwise restrain a market, you don't already have to be a monopoly.

"A "legal monopoly" is, as the word says, legal. "

I didnt say legal monopoly, I said "in the legal sense" as in "in the way monopoly is defined in the law".

Btw, I'm not defending MS but it bothers me when people use the wrong terms or try to make MS into something they're not.
