score! wouldnt it be funny (wont happen but be funny) if vista loses more in lawsuits than sales?

they would effectively put themselves out of buisness.

no they dont, they have been hit for monopoly issues before. actually none of these have gone to court anyway, all settlements. you can bet they are good at settling though but they will still lose big.

Then how come IE is STILL a part of windhose and can't be uninstalled normally and completely? Like I said, they own the courts. A browser is a browser, not an essential part of an OS.

Also, why is M$ getting their *ss kicked in the EU and not the US (at least nowhere near the same degree). Three cheers for the Europeans, hip hip hooray, hip hip hooray, hip hip hooray!
