How to end Microsoft's monopoly

Author: JT Smith

Times (via Law.com) has
an interesting and somewhat debatable view on how
to end Microsoft's monopoly: "Lost in the tempest of litigation is the fact that the government had and has the power to erode Microsoft's monopoly -- without resorting
to antitrust laws -- by buying and promoting competing products. That is, the government could use its power as a large consumer of
products and services to promote competition. This is especially so since the federal government is perhaps the single largest customer for
Microsoft Windows."
