Editorial I hear often that when something new appears that "competition is good". The primary reasons competition is seen as good, are: it drives down prices; it gives consumers more choice; it pushes technology forward, quicker. Competition is not good because: competition is why consumers have to choose between HD-DVD and BluRay; competition is why DRM exists; and more. In this article, each of the supposed benefits of competition will be looked at in more detail.

There isn't any politics involved. Since when did simply working together on technology instead of trying to out ego the other guy become Marxist? People were collaborating a lot during the early days of computing; where'd all that go now?

I think it's stupid to think this article has anything to do with politics.
