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.
