Subject proposal is an ambitious one. It may
have to dovetail with what is already being done
along its general lines:
There is the actual brief on the evidence and
law to compel MS to obey its consent decree
that the Department of Justice now has and will
eventually make public during its enforcement
There is also this website, http://www.essential.org
that not only maintains web copies all our comments
here but is tracking the whole Nader vs. MS appraisal.
The above is not to say anything against subject mapping
proposal. As I understand it, it is a good one.
Thinking aloud, it might be nice to create, with
the help of this List and the team at essential.org
a hypertext petition from citizens such as ourselves
which had a main body demanding that MS cease
and desist from stated anti-competitive practices.
Below this common petition would signatures.
Along with our signatures we would be invited to
add URL's to supporting additional evidence and/
or argument on the law and business aspects of
the main petition. Conceivably, these URL's
could be moderated by the publisher (say,
essential.org) of the petition.

I wish to ask the members of this list: do you have specific instances
of interface tying, or other tying, suitable for putting in the form of
an affidavit signed by you that could be used in court?
