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.

As others have pointed out, this should not be an argument against competition. Instead it is proof that competition is needed. Seeing as Windows won the competition, there was no longer any competition in the market hence it stagnated.

Isn't it ironic that open standards are guilty of Microsoft's success? ;)
