"And you really think that's an isolated occurence? That's how big business works!"

Saying all people at some time will break the law is not making everyone "equivalent" to hardened career criminals. MS paid $1B in fines and legal settlement EACH year since 1990 or so. They have been convicted for illegal (note, ILLEGAL) monopoly abuses on every inhabited continent. All big business will abuse some people some of the time. MS made it an art form by screwing over ALL of the people ALL of the time.

"Where was IBM 'screwed over', for example?"

I agree that was only in 1995 that MS killed OS/2

"And where is this worse than what other companies are doing - just as an example, what do you think about Oracle's ridiculous lawsuit against Google over the Java API copyright?"

Oracle is like MS in more than one way. Besides being as abusive, Oracle too has a history of failure in anything outside their database pseudo-"monopoly".



Of course I can say that. Statcounter has versions split for a reason and under that reason they does not split some Android versions. Maybe that may be that they cannot separate versions.

Take it as a (very visual) sign that PC is becoming less relevant, and it's moving fast.
