  I submit: There are no Lambs. Any Lambs were slaughtered long ago. The
  "Pride" has reverted to cannibalism in their "struggle" to survive.
  The problem here is not Micro$oft, or $un, or communists, or capitalists,
  or even psychiatrists. The problem is the Mega-Corporation, and how it does
  it's business.
  I believe that until the whole philosophy of business changes, we (as
  Consumers) will have these greed-dominated problems of monopoly to deal
  with. And no, I have no earthly idea for remedying the situation, with
  laws, or any other way.
  Just my humble opinion,
