Re: [SLE] FW: [SLE] [OT] Legal Issues Type Question

Well and good, but when an international giant is using strongarm tactics to
try to pressurise manufacturers and dealers into refusing customers' requests
for PCs without an OS (see all the links sent earlier in the discussion),
your 'market forces' fix is not going to work in the way you suggest.

When the market is being deliberately distorted by near monopolies, your
economic analysis needs to come up a level from the 'choose a different Mom
and Pop on Main Street' cure. If major injustices are going to be prevented,
public discussion is vital and telling people to keep quiet and enjoy the
just and fair operations of the great corporations is naive.
