The judge ruled MS a monopoly.


Microsoft is the only company in the world that can tie and integrate their applications with the Windows OS. Microsoft could even program to have Windows crash Netscape every 10 minutes so people get frustrated and decide to use IE.

That's unfair to other companies. If Microsoft wasn't a monopoly, then they could do those things. But MS is a monopoly, so the playing field must be fair for other companies.
