bonch writes "Following a threat of subpoena, Google chairman Eric Schmidt will be testifying at a Senate antitrust subcommittee in September. Google has denied acting anticompetitively and cites its success as the cause of the increased scrutiny. The Federal Trade Commission and European Commission have both launched antitrust investigations into the company, and the Justice Department is also conducting a criminal probe into their acceptance of ads from rogue web pharmacies, an investigation Google has set aside $500 million to settle."

    You left out the part where Microsoft used hidden program hooks, undocumented, in their OS to make it so that Lotus couldn't perform as well as Office (whose development team had access to ALL of the operating system and optimized calls).

    The same crap Microsoft did to Netscape when they started trying to take over with Internet Explorer.

    The same crap Microsoft did as recently as 2009 to Firefox [].

    Now run along and get yourself an education. You obviously don't know crap about what you are talking about.

Adding features does not necessarily increase functionality -- it just makes the manuals thicker.
