I didn't read through all the responses but, typically, people forget one major point in all this. Windows is a monopoly on the desktop. THAT alone is the reason Microsoft has gotten themselves in hot water with the EU over this and also got themselves into trouble with the US Justice Department years ago. That is the foundation of all this.
No! Chrome and Google and Apple and iPhones and iPads and all that are NOT the same thing or in the same boat or in the same category in any way shape or form. None of those devices or companies are monopolies of their markets like Microsoft is with Windows on the desktop.
Until people understand how Microsoft being a monopoly affects this, they cannot understand why Microsoft is having the problems they are having.
