Apple I thought OSNews would be a good forum to talk about a matter that has been weighing on my mind lately primarily because the site has been so focused on Apple's patents and litigation as of late. The news that HP, the largest PC manufacturer in the world is spinning off or getting out of this business is what really prompted me to write this article.

Arguably, MS' desktop monopoly created further monopolies. It's unlikely that MS or Adobe would have ported their products to the myriad platforms out there, leaving room for competition.

Hell, it might have even avoided the standards mess. Imagine if Office had to market itself as interoperable in order to compete.
