Editorial I hear often that when something new appears that "competition is good". The primary reasons competition is seen as good, are: it drives down prices; it gives consumers more choice; it pushes technology forward, quicker. Competition is not good because: competition is why consumers have to choose between HD-DVD and BluRay; competition is why DRM exists; and more. In this article, each of the supposed benefits of competition will be looked at in more detail.

How do you know you beat me and that it was not just an artifact of the process scheduler implementation?

Oh, if *only* we had listened to Con, *I* might have beaten *you*! ;-)
