John ->>> Second, *HEAVY* fines. Perhaps $100 billion fine outright, and then an annual fine of $25 billion a year for the next ten years. These fines should then be put to several good uses. First, reward those peoplewho were harmed by their practices. I'm sure that IBM, Apple, and AOL will be thrilled to receive corporate welfare. Of course, that still won't make OS2 a viable operating system, Apple a developer's system, or Netscape a profit center - but that's ok, they were "damaged" by Microsoft even though it was their own incompetence that hurt them more than Microsoft ever could have.Yup, we definitely ought to get in the habit of rewarding commercial failures. I'm sure that will be wonderful for the economy, the free market system, and the consumer.Steph
