Give me a break, Mike. Capitalism is all well and good, but it stops working when a company like Microsoft uses its power to prevent people from making educated choices. Do you honestly think that a company with an operating system that is superior in every way to Microsoft's would survive without some kind of controls in place? Microsoft can buy or crush any threat to their monopoly, so forget about any serious competition. While you're at it, why not deregulate the media industry? How long would it be before mergers and acquisitions left us with one or two companies owning every TV station, newspaper, and ISP? Now THAT sounds like China. Good for companies that are successful. Good for them even if they have a monopoly. But when they abuse that monopoly to the detrement of the citizens, they need to be reigned in.
