Editorial This article is an answer to "Competition Is Not Good" by Kroc and reading it wouldn't be comfortable without switching to and from the original article. I wrote it just because I do strongly disagree with Kroc and I believe I can prove that he is not as close to truth as it may seem from the first glance.

Thanks Dmitrij for this nice rebuttal.

There are enough prominent examples in the IT industry showing why real competition is / would be needed.

Well, I believe Kroc didn't actually mean that competition is bad. He used deliberate overstatement to demonstrate the costs of competition for users and tehnology, and that is the way his article should be considered.
P.S.: I'm Dmitrij D. Czarkoff (the author).

I still say that his grief is with consumerism and "not" competition.
