Microsoft still has plenty of incentive to make sure Skype remains quality software. If Skype goes to hell nothing is stopping people from using a different program, and as long as Microsoft has a reason to compete there is NO reason why someone should step in and tell them how to run their company. There are maybe a handful of situations in all of U.S. history in which a company's size needed to be limited to ensure there is competition and I wouldn't say Microsoft was involved in any one of them.
Please stop the anti trust cries. As long as there is a reason for a company to compete, there is absolutely no reason to step in.
What has microsoft done? Suits have been quite ridiculous?......
Google i call a good business....Evan Apple ,with their fetish for running to the patent office every week, does better business that Microsoft.
How about having to endure internet explorer for ******* years until google chrome and Firefox was released because MS drove Netcape out of business and IE was "packaged" into Windows and the average user had no other choice but to use IE.
HOw about the fact that Windows was the same damn OS vomited over and over again for over a decade. Lets not remember the horror stories of Millenium and Vista. If not for Mac OS popularity increase, small but visible, how much longer would we have had to wait for Windows 7 (best OS MS has made since '98).
When there is lack of competition THERE IS NO INCENTIVE. Customers have no choice. As long as their are companies like Microsoft there will always be a need for someone "to step in".
