RE: Macintosh alternative?
I pose this is a question to the AntiTrust experts among us:
Based on whatever precedents might exist in other industries, just what
are the limits--if any--that govern behind the scenes collaboration
between Microsoft, and its sole commercial competitor in the end-user
I ask this partly in response to (probably not well informed)
observations made in computer industry publications that MS investment
in Apple was meant to forestall further antitrust action. (Though I bet
no one who published such speculation knew any more about antitrust
legislation than I do...)
