    Well M$ strikes back.

    A friend of mine worked at the Expo in NYC. She was handing out pamphlets for a Mac Vendor.

    She was standing by the main entrance when approached by an employee from a MSN booth. The MSN employee insisted that she leave, because the space "belonged" to them because they had a large booth close by.
    She refused to leave and was threatend with the police. Well a NY State Trooper did arrive and told the MSN employee, that he did in fact not have rights to the public space and that she could stay as she pleased.
    After the state trooper left, the MSN employees supervisor came over and harassed my friend.
    We will see how the saga continues tomorrow.

    M$ feeling monopolistic??
    Whadda ya think?

    Micro$oft always has to be in control...they don't like it when there is something bigger and better out there. They intentionally stifle compition at the corporate level, so their employees obviously think they can harass whom ever they please as well. :mad:

    I hate Microsoft. I hate American corporations. Actually, I hate ALL corporations. They all pull the same stunts, its just that some are more discreet about it than others. Microsoft is simply evil.

    I hate America. This global domination b.s. is very troubling. Its like they have to be everywhere on the globe. Its as if getting on China's good side, or fighting a war to spread democracy (and therefore, American capitalism), is all for the sake of increasing their potential market since they have nowhere else to go, Microsoft included.

    Okay okay, I admit it. I just hate people.
