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.

Bill Gates says that the computer industry has lots of competition. Bill says, "processors, video cards, sound cards, ect... have all dropped in price" Generally, lower prices and better products means thare is competition. Atlest Bill Gates think so. Well, Windows costs the same it did 10 years ago and they are still fixing the BUGS! Microsoft says Win98 fixed 3000 bugs!

If you ask me, the product still sucks and the price hasn't lowered!

What do you think? Sounds like a monopoly to me!
