Windows Principles – Twelve Tenets to Promote Competition

Press Release: Windows Principles – Twelve Tenets to Promote Competition

Wow, it’s almost like Microsoft finally “gets it” with regard to the anti-trust issues they have been having.  While some of the tenants are going to allow OEM’s to junk-up new PCs even more than they already do, the majority of the points are going to be good for consumers, and I believe good for Microsoft as well.  Microsoft’s products are going to have to compete on a much more level playing field.  No more coasting just because you’re guaranteed adoption with the next release of Windows.  Your products now have to actually beat the competition.
