They are a known, serial monopolist and at this point MSFT deserves the corporate death penalty. They should go ahead and force the company to split into consumer software, enterprise software, Windows, and hardware companies like the should have done more than a decade ago.

EDIT: A well reasoned rebuttal is worth a thousand downvotes. But my fault for getting involved in religious wars...

3am: are you sure that your old comments are being downvoted?

So if they are indeed being downvoted, it's being done by someone with more access than a standard user. This seems unlikely, although not impossible.
