Kelly McNeill writes “In several articles published on the osOpinion.com site last year, I warned everyone about what was coming down the pike from Microsoft.

The articles warned that Microsoft’s .NET product strategy was just a faint whisper of what Microsoft actually intends for the long-term. That strategy is to get the consuming public completely dependent (in one way or another) on Microsoft, and to have us pay for that privilege. Prior to .NET, Microsoft enjoyed a relatively unchallenged position in the browser and development tools product markets.”
