Question Microsoft is finally cought "forcing" people to use their stuff....


I found this article http://news.monstersandcritics.com/b...ter_complaints
microsoft made vista so that people would prefer using their search feature, but thanks to google that will be changed , but this is one of the few times microsoft has been forced to change it's trend of forcing people to use purely microsoft products..... what do you think about this?

I read about it on CNET a little while ago:
http://news.com.com/Microsoft+agrees...tml?tag=cd.top
Title should have been "Government Approved Monopolists Squabble".

I guess that's the closest we can get to free market competition in the United Corporations of America.
