Nothing whatsoever, as long as the playing field is open to others to join in.
The question then becomes, er, what others? The offer of Vista, or paying extra to get XP, is not exactly an "option" in the strict, free-enterprise, meaning of the word.
If the market is not open, then we are talking monopoly. Again.
