ya but here is the messed up part. Remember the EU (using most recent examples) making forcing MS to provide choices? to make sure vendor lock in was dialed back a bit? Where the hell are they for this kind of stuff?!

The EU didn't get involved with the Microsoft case until about 10 years after it actually mattered and alternative browsers were gaining ground on their own, proving that their interference was never needed to begin with.

EU didn't get involved because up to that point EU structures were being set-up. When they finally had the "balls" and the power, they immediately went after the offenders.
