Legal If you can't compete, litigate. This train of thought has been quite prevalent among major technology companies as of late, most notably by Apple and Microsoft, who both cannot compete with Android on merit, so they have to resort to patent lawsuits and FUD. Both Asustek and Acer have revealed that Microsoft plans to impose royalty fees upon the two Taiwanese hardware makers to prevent them from shipping Android and/or Chrome OS devices.

These manufacturers give two fingers to the US market and sell exclusivey to the rest of the world.
After all, even the Eu is a bigger market place that the US of A. Add that to the rest of the world where thay don't pay for Windows anyway, you have a vibrant market.
Then guys, advertise the fact that you haven't been Microsoft's bitch then you are onto a winner.
Why not let Microsoft wall up their own backyard and leave the rest of the world to get on with business eh?
