The Case FOR Microsoft As far as Ive seen this entire ordeal is over a FREE browser that Microsoft includes with windows for FREE and gives out on the internet for FREE just as Netscape and most other browser companies do I have yet to see where Microsoft is charging extraordinary prices for any of these FREE programs nor do I see how Netscape in using the governments definition a monopoly itself is being forced out of business by Microsofts FREE browser Remember the charge is against including Internet Explorer with Windows not the Windows monopoly itself What this entire case boils down to is that a few Washington liberals are upset at Microsoft for daring to be successful These are the kind of people that hate wealth capitalism and anything that is more successful than them My intention is to show that the case against Microsoft as a monopoly is weak and that the government is wasting its time As the government jumps to the defense of the all-too-often taken advantage of consumer they have accomplished very little They tried to prevent the release of Windows 98 a much anticipated and highly demanded program that was and is available at reasonable prices but didnt even phase the consumers second thoughts The government is costing taxpayers millions of dollars to pursue this suit against Microsoft Microsofts operating system near monopoly is probably good for us It is much better to have one operating system than 20 or even 2 Software compatibility technical support and setup are much more simplified with one operating system Programs today are specifically designed to be Windows compatible Would you rather have 20 local phone companies each with a different line and number running into your house or one as is the case now Also Internet Explorer brings browser competition to a market that is essentially monopolistic itself at least if you apply Janet Renos definitions of monopoly Internet Explorer
