“Yeah, I’m familiar with the case. Prosecuted and tried by a bunch of socialist pr!cks with the vigorous approval of the ninety-nine percent.”

‘Socialist pr!cks’? I don’t think so- it was Netscape pushing for the prosecution of Microsoft, and Robert Bork was representing Netscape. The argument was that Microsoft abuses their market power in operating systems to unlawfully keep rival applications from the marketplace.

After selling Netscape Navigator to AOL the Netscape crew became Mozilla and built the Firefox browser.

What would YOU call David Boies, then? A conservative stalwart?

I think that in this context, it's worthwhile to remid everyone of exactly what microsoft did, once they destroyed netscape. Does everyone recall how long microsoft skated along on IE5? Every browser in the world had tabs and many other features for years before microsoft ever bothered to do any enhancements to IE.

I think the biggest problem here is that mocrosoft has a history of abusing their dominant market position to destroy competition, then completely ignore the needs of their customers.
