well if you're gonna use big words, at least spell/type it correctly: it's 'laissez faire. ' Secondly, you obviously don't understand much about 'free' markets and anti-trust laws. Microsoft is a monopoly. It used its position as a monopoly to stifle competition. They've engaged in illegal activities, and this kind of anti-competitive behavior is partly why they are where they are now. I think even the diehard laissez faire advocates will say that monopoly behavior is bad in most cases.
