It only doesn't fit because you lack the ability to see the point ... or are simply ignoring that they are so similar that to acknowledge it would force you to rethink your stance.
That's a distortion, isn't it?
Microsoft were wrong because being anti-competitive is wrong. They were found guilty and admitted wrong doing it ends there. It's not an opinion any more. It's a fact. especially when they admitted it.
And no, they're just flat out irrelevant. A car is a car. A OS is an OS.
Intel were also doing the exact same thing. They've been caught gimping performance on compilers for AMD chips. They were bribing OEM's. They were being anti-competitive, they were acting against the law and were entirely wrong. The EC came down heavily on them, too.... But I supposed Intel should be allowed to abuse their position as market leader and dominate and do what they want with their compilers
too, eh? I mean, it's their money, they should be able to bribe who they want with it, right? That dang gubbermint ought not to be interfering in peoples lives like this. It's only taken AMD 10 years plus to get back on their feet after it all.
