Hmmm... maybe if Mac and Linux started gaining marketshare, Microsoft could actually start doing useful without fear of getting sued off the face of the earth for being a "monopoly".
I've been thinking that too. I think we could be seeing some amazing things if MS wasn't crippled by antitrust issues anymore.
I think that MS is crippled not because they are a monopoly, rather, they supposedly abused their monopoly to an unfair advantage.
Back to my original issue, I think it will be interesting to see at Christmas time how well PC sales do in comparison to Mac sales.
And whether or not Microsoft / Dell / HP / Sony do anything about it.
