>> ‘Socialist pr!cks’? I don’t think so

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

Why try to make this about Boies? He didn’t initiate the antitrust action, he was responding to the complaint coming from Netscape. Netscape and Bork hardly qualify as ‘socialists’, and Netscape’s case had merit.

Microsoft was using their position as the OS creator to hobble Netscape’s browser. Microsoft had no intention of competing solely on the quality of Internet Explorer versus Netscape Navigator, and they were denying consumers the ability to choose a competing product. If Microsoft had succeeded we would all be stuck with IE.
