Take a look at their history, including how they used forced bundling, extortion, much higher prices for non-exclusive use etc. to force market share. Windows is generally not sold to end users. It comes with most computers, denying consumers the right to say no. Micros~1 has various means to coerce computer manufacturers to use Windows to the exclusion of others. They have lost in court on this a few times, yet they keep on doing it.
