Intel Microsoft isn't the only company in the technology industry with a monopoly. Its partner in crime, Intel, has often been accused of monopoly abuse as well, and is currently under scrutiny by the same European Commission who fined Microsoft. Sources have told eWeek (which generally has a good track record) that Intel will indeed be found guilty this week of abusing its monopoly position to stifle the competition.

those u could argue was a result of AMD pushing Intel to compete. Without AMD, we would all still in the Ghz game.

Also, Intel blocked sales when AMD really came out with its then superior Athlon CPU. Not letting AMD have the sales they deserve is simply wrong !!! AMD needed the money to continue pushing the boundary. Intel with its money squeeze AMD by illegal soliciting OEM not to buy from AMD while trying to scramble something to catch up. That is just wrong. AMD could have a bigger market share today. Because Athlon was really that superior at that time. But AMD could only do so much when you dont have more money coming in.
