I confess that I’ve mostly lost interest in the various antitrust cases in which Microsoft is embroiled, mainly because I just don’t think any of the cases are going to amount to much when it’s all said and done. We all know Microsoft has a monopoly in several key markets, and we all know that the government isn’t really going to do anything about it, so the industry is just going to stay utterly screwed up indefinitely. I try to work around that. For example, the latest news from Sun’s case against Microsoft is that the judge is considering ordering Microsoft to bundle Java with Windows. What good is that going to do? If it’s guaranteed that there will be a JVM installed on computers running Windows, will developers suddenly start flocking to Java? I find that unlikely.
