LXer: Those who forget Santayana...

Published at LXer:

It must have passed beneath my radar it when it first was filed in 2004, but it caught my eye recently when Andy Updegrove mentioned it in Chapter 3 of his book-in-progress, The War of the Words. I'm talking about Novell's November 2004 antitrust complaint against Microsoft, filed shortly after settling an different, OS-related, complaint with Microsoft for $536 million. What is interesting to me, and why this "old news" is worth talking about, is the analysis Novell made in their complaint of Microsoft's treatment of document format standards. The concerns of 2004 (or 1995 even) are very similar to the concerns of 2007. Let's go through Novell's argument and see where it leads us.
