Microsoft caused their own problems with Clinton’s DOJ. First, they made a deal with Janet Reno. Then they willfully violated it, and she started stomping her boot in their face. It’s too bad that Microsoft didn’t invest that energy into designing a better browser instead.
What you say may be true, but so is what I said. Check the archives (and Alamo-Girl’s resources) for many well-documented posts about the tie-ins between Netscape, AmerIndo, Terry Lenzner, Reno, the White House coffees... the whole constellation of Clintonian corruption. Microsoft may not have played fair, but the role of the Chinese/Indonesian billionaires in bending Clinton’s ear and convincing him to Do Something about Microsoft is there for all to see. Please trust me on this— it has been one of my pet hobby-horses since 1996, and it’s all documented here on FR.
