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.

So Republicans are evil and Democrats are pure and without sin? come on mate -

Come on "mate" - don't put words in my mouth in an attempt to make a straw man argument in order to take the conversation off on your own preferred tangent.

I pointed out the very relevant, and not particularly distant, historically verifiable *fact* of the Clinton administration's DOJ's + 19 States' antitrust actions against Intel's business partner, Microsoft. Instead of addressing that, you are trying to turn this into a Republican vs Democrat free-for-all, and I refuse to play that game. The Obama administration is not the Bush administration. The current Congress also differs from those of the previous 8 years.

Again, the DOJ of the administration which preceeded the disastrous one of 2001-2008 demonstrably acted in a way more friendly to the causes of consumers, which was the statement of cautious optimism to which you objected in your post, which I replied to. Please address the *evidence* I have presented instead of changing the subject and speaking in fashionably cynical gereralities.
