Microsoft Good as well as bad news for Microsoft on the legal front. Their good news is that a judge has rejected Go Computing's claim that Microsoft used dirty tricks to keep it out of the operating system market. However, their bad news is that an EU committee ruled on Monday that Microsoft failed to comply with a landmark antitrust decision, paving the way for fines of up to 2 million euros a day, a source familiar with the situation said.

Well, the Commiewealth of Taxachusetts is NOT your typical American state - it and Commiefornia are the pretty much socialist police states compared to their neighbors... Trust me, I grew up in Mass - and there's a reason I live in New Hampshire now...

Like no income tax, no sales tax, and government employess I'm willing to trust... Case in point, a lady friend takes home more working a convenience store overnight here in NH than she did at 40K/year salary in Mass. What a difference crossing a border in the same COUNTRY can make.

Unlike Massachusetts with it's corrupt officials who make more than most Federal employees - and that's BEFORE you figure in Mob payoffs, Business kickbacks, and welfare state mentality.

Seriously, when I heard about the Massachusetts move towards open document, the only thing that went through my mind is "Ok, who's getting a kickback on this and from where?". It sure as hell had nothing to do with the 'freedom' of the people or 'anti-microsoft' policies... I know that state too well for that.
