Microsoft already duped the software consumers into buying into fully
proprietary software. Given the prevalent time horizon of average IT
manager's thinking I fully expect Microsoft to get that stuff deployed
before the poor saps start realizing they're being ripped. After that
Microsoft will leverage their market power to exclude any competition.
Exactly like they did it before on numerous occasions.
Their PR budget is bigger than GDP of some nations. They're ruthless and
show remarkable lack of respect to the notions of fairness or common good.
