Windows Both Mozilla and Google have expressed concern over Windows 8. Microsoft's next big operating system release restricts access to certain APIs and technologies browsers need - only making them available to Internet Explorer. Looking at the facts, it would seem Mozilla and Google have a solid case - coincidentally, the responses on the web are proof of the slippery slope we're on regarding ownership over our own machines.

I don't mean OSnews. I mean why do Mozilla and Google now voice concerns about Windows anticompetitive policy, but they didn't voice it much about Apple before? I understand that Windows has more market penetration, but on mobile iOS is pretty big as well. If there is a potential antitrust defense, it should be applied to Apple too.

Apple made their own products from iPod to iMac thus tighter control of specification while Microsoft(primarily a software company) relied on third party manufacturers.
