The Microsoft Non-Decision

Dan Gillmore says it well in Microsoft: Freedom to Dominate.

"Microsoft, serial corporate lawbreaker, is getting away with it. Competition took a hit on Friday. So did the usefulness of antitrust law.And so did innovation, which is the worst loss of all."

I still have hopes that the Open Source movement will continue to grow and give us some choices. Not at the desktop level, of course. That battle was lost long ago and Apple isn't going to be able to undo it. But as everything important moves to the net, there's still hope that the non-Microsoft offerings will get better and better. We'll see.
