Justice is Blind: Why Microsoft

Justice is Blind:
Why Microsoft Might Actually Be Relieved (Even Thrilled) With Judge Jackson’s Order to Split the Company in Two

“According to hardware developers who want to keep their jobs and businesses, and who therefore choose to keep their names the heck out of this column, Microsoft uses hardware certification as a part of their marketing strategy. Redmond deliberately sets unreasonable standards for new hardware that has the result of requiring customers to purchase new Windows operating system versions where they might otherwise not have had to.”

Nice theory. It also sticks some with those damm WinModems.
