Microsoft posts devilish Q4 earnings of $6.66 billion

In 1975 Bill Gates, Paul Allen and a certain unnamed, cloven-hoofed, hot-under-the-collar associate made a pact: to rule the world! It seems, 35 years, billions of dollars and dozens of lawsuits later that they've made it.

That just won't cut it. The answer: more bloat for the end user! Yes, the European Commission is considering forcing OEMs to distribute alternative browsers with their systems.

He raises the issue that the Internet was founded on "openness and innovation" and worries that this "hostile" maneuver by Microsoft may be an attempt to close the Internet in a way similar to how Microsoft has exerted its influence in the PC market i...
