Re: [newtech-1] as a consumer - who cares about the OS. You care what the thing does, how well, for how much, etc.

Monopolies are bad for consumers.  There is not enough competition or
innovation.

Heck GM and Ford couldn't even get it right with enough competition.
They'll be bankrupt soon because they bet their companies that oil
would be cheap forever.  Maybe they deserve a bailout too.

Email me a couple of examples where you think monopolies are good for
the consumer and we'll start from there.  Microsoft is not an
acceptable answer.  :-)  Gotta run...
