Microsoft Vista To Support Only Microsoft Products Denies Monopolistic Intent



Microsoft Vista To Support Only Microsoft Products; Denies Monopolistic Intent
Microsoft announced today that its new Vista operating system would support only products made by Microsoft.
The announcement immediately set off a​ tsunami of​ furious responses from all the​ other software companies and​ a​ renewed sharp eye from regulatory authorities.
The company effusively denied that the​ move is​ in​ any way indicative of​ monopolistic practices.
Microsoft CEO, Steven Ballmer, known to​ insiders from competing companies as​ the​ Embalmer, noted, Since Vista is​ a​ Microsoft product, what reason on earth is​ there to​ support products made by other companies? if​ they want people to​ use their programs, they’re free to​ create their own desktop operating systems.
His announcement did not sufficiently palliate representatives of​ other major software companies.
A representative from google lashed out, saying, It wasn’t enough that the​ new version of​ Internet Explorer will have a​ default setting to​ MSN Search .​
Now, we understand when people click on options, there won’t be any .​
That just doesn’t seem fair, even though, I​ admit, he-he, google is​ the​ default setting in​ Firefox.
Questioned about the​ contentious issue, Bill Gates stated flatly, I​ have always been very influenced by my last name, and, in​ this case, as​ it​ appears in​ the​ well-know phrase, ‘Sorry, the​ gates are closed.
It appears that the​ issue will finally be determined by how courts view the​ Microsoft insistence that other companies are still free to​ create their own desktop operating systems.
As far as​ the​ American economy is​ concerned, the​ most significant development seems to​ be that, as​ a​ result of​ the​ pending flurry of​ lawsuits, zillions of​ lawyers are currently gleefully employed.
