It's true they could do worse, but what we have now is bad enough. I think the problem is that they try to be too many things for too many people. If they'd consolidate a bit and worry about getting a stable, fast OS out the door and let other people worry about browsers, media players, etc. they'd be alot better off. I'm a Vista user on 2 different rigs. While I'm happy with it overall, I'd be running Linux instead if I could play my games on it without jumping through hoops.
I'm not really concerned about all the EU stuff. America has a capitalist economy, and we've seen that no matter how hard MS tries, they can't run off or bankrupt the competition. Look at Apple or the open source movement (Firefox, Linux, etc.) as examples. Even though MS is doing everything in their power to dominate, these apps are steadily gaining in market share.
