  Personally, I would like it it we kept a narrow focus:
  Microsoft is on trial, not because of the quality of its software (a
  lot of it *is* good), but because of bussines practices. Microsoft is
  on trial, not because Win NT is less stable than OS/2 or Linux, but
  because of how they market it. Microsoft is on trial, not because
  they are supposedly the root of all evils in the computer world, such
  as consumers making ill-informed choices, but because the are
  illegally leveraging a monopoly.
  As far as I'm concerned, Microsoft is free to create and sell any
  quality of software they want to, as long as they don't artificially
  restrict the sales of competitors.
