Naderite In Europe

           Antitrust at the 'grass roots':
           My local newspaper, the Vero Beach (FL) Press Journal (one of the
  Scripps Howard chain), had an editorial this morning allowing as how "Ralph
  Nader is trying to drum up anti-Microsoft legal action in Europe... Nader,
  who apparently despises Microsoft, sent an underling to convince the
  European Union that it ought to kick the corporation around a bit, too.  The
  idea should be appealing to Europeans, who some years ago extorted
  privileged information from IBM and passed it on to their uninspired
  computer companies.  Meanwhile, Japan and South Korea have reportedly
  started their own Microsoft probes, even without the urging of a Naderite."
