Your application will self-destruct within 2 iterations of Windows
Microsoft has already been seen impeding and harming highly competitive software using Windows Vista. There is a long history there and Novell is a victim too.
Here is a good old story about Microsoft being pressured to play nice with competitors on its desktop platform, which is a monopoly.
Microsoft said in October that its “Troika” project, designed to ensure that competitors’ programs can run on its Windows operating system without glitches, won’t be ready until October 2006, nine months behind schedule.
Later came Vista, destroying compatibility, especially for third-party developers.
When will there be justice? █
