Intel Microsoft isn't the only company in the technology industry with a monopoly. Its partner in crime, Intel, has often been accused of monopoly abuse as well, and is currently under scrutiny by the same European Commission who fined Microsoft. Sources have told eWeek (which generally has a good track record) that Intel will indeed be found guilty this week of abusing its monopoly position to stifle the competition.

I would have to agree that in recent history Intel has come up with better products and even though I do believe that this is unfair, I also think that AMD never did came up with a good product to compete. Just look at Phenom vs Core 2 Quad, then you have the Core i7, AMD doesn't have anything to compete with that platform. Although if you go to dual cores, they do have some good processors for quite less money.

Intel does need to pay for this as I'd like to be able to choose my hardware rather than having a wealthy company choosing for me.
