Another appalling decision from the EU Court (correction, the loathsome EU Court), overruling Microsoft's appeal, and making them share their code (with the huge fines on top). Since 2004 one of the best ways to ruin my day has been to read or think about this case. Little men and little women trying to make their careers by destroying what I think is probably the most successful, most innnovative company, in the history of capitalism. And those socialist bastards in the EU cheering and putting their thumbs down from the stalls. Cynical, low, corrupt little shits who've never known what it's like to innovate and create. And all the rotten little hanger on companies in the shadow of this titan who are baying for blood so that they may then feast on the carcass for their own ignoble gain.
And I have this fantasy, come daydream, that Bill Gates will hold a press conference and announce the demise of Microsoft forthwith: no new products, no support for existing ones, they are simply going to disappear: and then see what the world looks like. Which, of course, will never happen (well, only in novels, apparently).
Link follows, I'll leave you each to your own resources in cleansing the filth from it as you click in: EU Treachery.
