>>I think it's a bit of a stretch to think that a 2 1/2 point move in Microsoft's share price means that they've won...

Well, there's something going on here. Perhaps people should not be concerned that Microsoft may eventually get broken up. The pieces may be worth more than the whole, investment-wise. Just look where you'd be if you held on after the AT&T breakup. Let's'd have RBOCs, Lucent, etc...great stuff. Of course, if they survive this latest round unscathed, then it will be just as good.

This world needs standards. There's nothing wrong with the current situation. Can someone tell me what's wrong with Microsoft software? It's everywhere because it's good, and everything works. PC Magazine didn't say that MSWord97 was the most elegant piece of Windows software ever written for nothing. I might be concerned if Microsoft wrote substandard stuff, but they're smarter than that. And I'm convinced that everything Microsoft is working on now, both in terms of product development and research, will be better for the computing public.
