Did MS Invent Anything?

Saturday October 17th, 1998

George Giannukos writes in with a link to an interesting article at PCWeek regarding Microsoft. George writes, "This is the first computer site telling it how it is! Finally, a computer site that is brave enough to bash Microsoft for all its illegal, anti-competitive practices..."

We've all known this for a while, but George is right - this is the first time I've seen this detailed in a major industry magazine.

On a side note, since the MS antitrust case directly affects this community, we'll be doing sporadic updates on the state of the case. Since most industry news sites don't have a talkback feature, we'll be linking to major updates from this site so we have a forum to talk.

well, I think IE is only winning in the consumer space is because of Microsoft hard ball tactics...

In the corporate space Netscape is winning...Netscape actually rose 5%.

All of Microsoft hard-ball tactics don't influence business as much as it does the consumer...

Netscape is winning in the corparete market, because Microsoft isn't using its bullshit practices....When communicator is given a fair chance it looks like people are choosing Netscape, not IE! I think this just goes to show, that people will pick Netscape if the playing field is level...

and that's the whole point of the Microsoft trail. Is to give other companies a fair chance against Microsoft..
