Legal After Microsoft's extortion racket has failed to stop Android, and after Oracle's crazy baseless lawsuit failed to stop Android, and after Nokia adopting Windows Phone failed to stop Android, Microsoft, Nokia, and Oracle are now grasping the next straw in their fruitless efforts to stop Android: they've filed an antitrust complaint with the EU, claiming Google unfairly bundles applications with Android.

I find this part of the complaint just hilarious: “disadvantages other providers, and puts Google’s Android in control of consumer data on a majority of smartphones shipped today”, adding that this “predatory distribution of Android at below-cost makes it difficult for other providers of operating systems to recoup investments in competing with Google’s dominant mobile platform”.

1. This is what Microsoft did to kill Netscape.

2. Microsoft told the world for years that Linux was more expensive that Windows. Now the story changes?

3. Free software is largely a reaction to Microsoft's almost total control over of the OS market. Free is the one thing that can't be bought or sued out of the market.
