The Microsoft article was very interesting to me because it gave their descriptive history of how the company came to be. Not just the dates and other boring material but their business ingenuity that took them from a second rate company to one of the largest companies in the entire world. Reading about their business plan and business deals real allowed me to respect the company a great deal for their competitive nature over the years. I have a hard time dealing with others who complain about Microsoft violating anti trust laws. I guess my stance is a little uncaring, but I feel that if Microsoft competitively took something over, there shouldn't be rules to keep them from reigning supreme. It is not like they acquired the market illegally or unfairly. Through their superior ingenuity and innovation, they soared beyond the competition and now should be able to enjoy a nice spot at the top. I feel that they should also be able to effectively defend their spot at the top. Monopolies can be broken. Many people viewed that major airlines in the past such as Delta would not be touched by competitors but Delta itself is bankrupt with smaller more innovative companies making all of the money. Now flying Delta is a huge hassle because they’re prices are through the roof as well as their flights always get cancelled or delayed due to equipment problems. Monopolies are not untouchable, but they will make it very hard to knock them off of the throne that they rightfully control. But with innovation, ingenuity, and a good business plan, anything is possible. I think that if the right people worked at it, they could take Microsoft down in a legal competitive way. Involving the court of law promotes nothing for anybody. Microsoft should be allowed to operate the way it sees fit until the right people come and knock them off of their pedestal.
