Legal Internet search leader Google is trying to convince federal and state authorities that Microsoft's Vista operating system is stifling competition as the high-tech heavyweights wrestle for the allegiance of personal computer users. In a 49-page document filed April 18 with the U.S. Justice Department and state attorneys general, Google alleged that the latest version of Microsoft's Windows operating system impairs the performance of 'desktop search' programs that find data stored on a computer's hard drive. Besides bogging down competing programs, Google alleged Microsoft had made it too complicated to turn off the desktop search feature built into Vista.

i cant uninstall konqueror or pidgin without severely breaking system

That statement is false. You can easily remove Konqueror without breaking your system.

The rest of your rant is invalidated by the fact that Microsoft holds a near-monopoly position as far as Desktop OSes are concerned. Rules change when you've got 90%+ of a market.

Almost all their products breaks down on linux/bsd systems.

Again with false statements. Google Earth and Picasa work very well on Linux.

No wonder you've got such a low Trust rating...
