> The trial court determined and two different appeals courts upheld
> that MS had an illegal monopoly.

And M$ is still intransigent about that LEGAL FACT, much to the dismay
of the federal judge overseeing the latest (toothless) consent decree:

   In a rare display of indignation, U.S. District Judge Colleen
   Kollar-Kotelly demanded an explanation from Microsoft's lawyers and
   told them, "This should not be happening."

   Legal and industry experts said Microsoft's demands probably would
   have violated a landmark antitrust settlement the same judge approved
   in 2002 between the company and the Bush administration. The
   government and Microsoft disclosed details of the dispute in a court
   document last week.

Just to really get her riled, the M$ snakes pulled another stunt:

   "This needs to get done," U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly
   said of a project designed to help put potential rivals on a more
   equal competitive footing with Microsoft.

   "If there's an issue of resources, then put them in," said
   Kollar-Kotelly, who endorsed the settlement with the U.S. government
   and state attorneys general in November 2002.

Any M$ apologists saying M$ isn't an illegal monopoly are just as much
a part of that pack of liars and thieves as M$ itself.

They need to discuss it with Judge Colleen, and STignorantFU about it.
