Legal Microsoft suffered a stunning defeat on Monday when a European Union court backed a European Commission ruling that the US software giant illegally abused its market power to crush competitors. The European Union's second-highest court dismissed the company's appeal on all substantive points of the 2004 antitrustruling. The court said Microsoft, the world's largest software maker, was unjustified in tying new applications to its Windows operating system in a way that harmed consumer choice. The verdict, which may be appealed only on points of law and not of fact, could force Microsoft to change its business practices.

And how f*****g dare anyone out there make fun of Microsoft, after all they've been through!

They lost their costumers, they've been through 2 gajillion law-suits, they had 10 unsuccessful operating systems, their manager turned out to be a user and cheater and now they're going through an anti-trust battle.

All you people care about is making money off of them. THEY'RE A MONOPOLE!

* sob, sob *

What you don't realize is that they're making you all this money and all you do is write a bunch of cr*p about them!

They haven't done nothing good in years! Their operating system is called Windows for a reason, because all you people want is for Bill Gates to jump from Windows Windows WINDOWS. LEAVE THEM ALONE!!!!!!!

* gentle sobbing *

You're lucky they even do crimes for you BASTARDS! LEAVE MICROSOFT ALONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
