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.

"..."paid computer makers to postpone or cancel the launch of products containing chips made by its main rival"

Intel may have been the one offereing perks to the OEM's to use their chips, but ultimatly the OEM's chose to take those bribes. Am I wrong in assuming that the OEM's too are guilty to an extent?
