Sucks... doesn't it? Its not surprising in todays political climate, steeped in corporate quid pro quo. Micro$uck's court imposed breakup has been overturned. The good news is that the decision did reaffirm that Micro$hit IS a monopoly, and has used its status to crush its competion in an unfair way. It is just the penalty phase that has been overturned and remanded to a new trial and new judge. Like I say, in today's Pro-Business (therefore anti-consumer) environment, it is unlikely that Micro$tink will get any meaningful penalty out of this... we'll have to wait and see.
