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.

Techies have psuedo-politics. That's where we get our 'holy wars' from. But at the end of the day I don't go club Windows users to death because I'm a Mac user, or vice-versa. I don't go on hate rallies in the streets. People need to get a grip of reality and stop trying to associate this article with those kinds of behaviours. There simply is no reality there.
