    Monopoly is as Monopoly Does

    Of course they'll appeal. And appeal and appeal and appeal again until they get their way. Microsoft is probably the only company in the world who can hammer away at the legal system/government bureaucracies with endless cash reserves until they win their case. Its happened before and will happen again. And then they have the gall to claim they're not a monopoly.

    That's why I never use or purchase Microsoft products. Ever.

    There is one slight catch with their appeal. The inquiry is being headed by a leading European economist whose views of the economic implications of the rulling for Microsoft would be different than that of a lawyer who would be more interested in the legal implcations of the case. So wait and see, I have a feeling than the out come maybe interesting.
