    In other words, what they did was wrong because it was them who did it. 
It is fine if anyone else does, just not fine if Microsoft does it.

    And what is it they have a monopoly in again? Operating systems? What 
about OSX? x86 operating systems? What about Linux? Oh yeah, they have a 
monopoly in "desktop operating systems for x86-based computers".

    Can you cite any rational reason whatsoever for defining the market so 
ridiculously narrowly? Of course not.

    There is no rational way Microsoft could have expected the irrational 
and nonsensical basis for this argument.
