  I don't doubt your findings and assertions, but I never
  expected any hard results to come of this conference.
  The conference is only a beginning, a bringing together
  of allies, a declaration that we will stand up for our
  rights -- finally. The road will be a long, hard one.
  Microsoft is not a weak company, and it is not a company
  that takes its competitors lightly -- as we all know.
  Microsoft will fight back with every weapon, legal and
  illegal, at its disposal.  I am sure Ralph Nader & Co.
  realize this, or I don't think they would have gotten
  involved.  If Microsoft could be overturned easily, why
  should the big guns (Nader & Co.) be called in?  No. The
  fight against Microsoft has been ongoing for many years,
  and will continue for more years to come. Hopefully, now,
  it won't be too much longer -- but a
  quick decision?  Not by my reckoning.
