I just heard the news about the Bush DoJ reversing its entire campaign to bring Microsoft to justice for its crimes. Weird. While I’m disappointed, this doesn’t come as a complete surprise given Bush’s lousy performance in office so far. This topic has come up often since the election and nearly everyone I’ve talked to (including myself) has predicted that Bush would cave in to Microsoft eventually. On the other hand, while I’d love to see Microsoft get what they deserve, it may be more satisfying in the long run if we beat them ourselves with Free Software instead letting the US government do it for us. But that’s still a big if.
