Fair justice for Microsoft?

Author: JT Smith

Mario Rodrigues writes of a commentary at Van's Hardware: "If implemented, the proposed settlement that the DOJ has succumbed to will not change the industry for the better, but will continue to leave the consumer, government, and business, over a barrel, to suffer Microsoft's continued exploitation, whose ill-gotten gains (profits) continue to line the pockets of those company officers responsible for creating this illegal monopoly. This can only be seen as 'payback' for breaking the law, and sets a terrible precedent for future antitrust litigation. Let's hope that Judge Kollar-Kotelly has the courage to turn payback into blowback."
