Lots of news about Microsoft lately, especially about Microsoft’s public response to the DOJ. Everyone seems to think that Microsoft is being very arrogant, but now I wonder if they’re maybe “putting on a show” in the hopes of getting exactly what they want. Maybe Microsoft realized a while back that they are going to lose the legal case no matter what they do to defend themselves. Then maybe they decided that a broken up Microsoft might actually good for them. And now maybe they’re all playing us (the public, the government, and the media) for fools, spouting their nonsense “innovations” defense. Hmmm….
I mean, maybe Microsoft has realized that two Microsofts would mean twice the growth, twice the income, and twice the “innovation.” [Shrug.]
