Re: Microsoft caught pirating somebody's patent again!!!

Discussion in 'Windows XP' started by vjp2.at@at.BioStrategist.dot.dot.com, Mar 18, 2010.

  1. Before OS/2 I liked MS. I had an MS-DOS-Generic (no-bitmap, no IBM compat)
    80186 and Microsoft went out of their way to be helpful.
    I also ran Multiplan on that Ampro 2210 with an HP2621a terminal.

    I joke about it, but it feels like this is true: when MS did biz with
    IBM on OS/2 it was almost like IBM body snatched MS and IBM died - IBM
    since then is a very different firm, and MS acts like the old IBM did.

    I also feel the venture capital industry badly distorted itself after
    the MS IPO. Before that you got a quarter million in VC and sold the
    company to a larger firm two years later, which is much more humane
    for the mad scientist entrepreneurs.

    American hardware always overcompensated in those days. Serial ports
    had a fanout of five, but the Japanese products would only tolerate
    one. Standards and compatibility became obsolete. The So-called
    Japanese model foisted on us in the mid 1980s was a disaster. It had
    nothing to do with the traditional American capitalism.

    Whatever may be the case, Microsoft is a thief and it should be forced
    to install PGA - Patent Genuine Advantage just like you and me are
    required to install WGA - Windows Genuine Advantage.

    There must be a mechanism to curb Microsoft's temptation to pirate
    somebody's patent.
