ES: Microsoft Todavía Abusa de su Plataforma Monopólica

(ODF | PDF | English/original)

Resumen: A pesar de todo la propaganda, Microsoft sigue atacando al pequeño, sobre todo con nuevos métodos como el concedido por el gobierno y USPTO-estampado monopolio.

Los que creen que el mítico “nuevo Microsoft” existe simplemente no están prestando atención. Pamela Jones de Groklaw recientemente escribió sobre defensa de la competencia/supervisión de Microsoft que vencen en el contexto de su extorsión de patentes[http://techrights.org/2011/05/05/attacking-the-market-with-swpats/]. Windows e Internet Explorer mientras tanto pierden su cuota de mercado, pero Microsoft está ocupada con las patentes de software como medio de atención en contra las plataformas de los competidores. ¿Cómo que no es abusivo? Es una distorsión del mercado. Irónicamente, dice IDG, “El Código Abierto frustó el caso antimonopolio contra Microsoft[http://www.computerworld.com/s/article/9216608/Open_source_foiled_Microsoft_antitrust_case]“, pero la afirmación no es convincente defendido en el artículo. Para citar una parte de ella:

Lo que se cernía sobre toda la sala del tribunal fue la enorme cuota de mercado de Microsoft en sistemas operativos de escritorio y aplicaciones de productividad, así como la disminución dramática del navegador web Netscape con la llegada de Internet Explorer.

Los economistas de Stanford, MIT y Berkeley presentaron escritos para asesorar al tribunal sobre los recursos, dando a Jackson los argumentos de una acción enérgica.

“El beneficio más importante para la sociedad que se creará con este remedio vendrá de una innovación más rápida”, escribió Paul Romer, profesor de economía en Stanford, en un breve de la corte acerca de una ruptura -de MS.

Para Jackson ordenó crear dos nuevas empresas y de gran alcance, uno para manejar el negocio del sistema operativo, y el otro, sus aplicaciones. Cada empresa tendría ingresos de más de $ 8 mil millones al año y las ganancias de más de $ 3 mil millones de dólares de 2000.

Huelga decir que Microsoft pichangueó el sistema legal y logró escaparse de la decisión de Jackson. Hemos escrito sobre esto antes[http://techrights.org/2009/06/15/2000-character-assassination-personal-attack/].

En general, la intervención del gobierno hasta ahora ha sido ineficaz. Microsoft sólo es necesario para mostrar algún tipo de compromiso mínimo para otras plataformas. Incluso que se está haciendo mal, porque, para usar este nuevo titular[http://www.computerworld.com/s/article/9216620/Microsoft_leaves_Mac_Office_users_in_the_lurch_says_researcher] , “Microsoft deja a los usuarios de Mac Office en estacados, dice la investigación” (no exactamente nuevas noticias, ¿verdad?)

Microsoft dijo ayer a los usuarios de Mac de Office no tiene aún una solución para un problema en PowerPoint que parchó para sus clientes de Windows.

“Las actualizaciones de seguridad para Microsoft Office 2004 para Mac, Microsoft Office 2008 para Mac, y Open XML File Format Converter para Mac están disponibles en este momento”, dijo la compañía MS11-036 boletín de seguridad. “Microsoft publicará actualizaciones para estos programas cuando se completa la prueba, para garantizar un alto grado de calidad para su liberación.”

MS11-036 forma parte de dos de mayo-día martes de parches, y cerró un par de agujeros sido calificado como “importante” en PowerPoint 2002, 2003 y 2007 en Windows. Sólo uno de los dos errores afecta a Office para Mac 2004 y Office para Mac 2008.

Las versiones más recientes, Office 2010 en Windows y Office para Mac 2011, no contienen la vulnerabilidad.

Esperar Microsoft se vuelva más y más viciosos dado que su deuda[http://techrights.org/wiki/index.php/Microsoft_-_Financials] crece. Sólo hay que ver lo que hizo Microsoft para OOXML[http://techrights.org/ooxml-abuse-index/] (abundancia de la corrupción). Microsoft no es sólo una empresa que está siendo demandado mucho por sus abusos, cada vez más, Microsoft ha demandado a otras empresas como parte de su modelo de negocio. El “nuevo Microsoft”, en caso de que este monstruo exista, es mucho peor de lo que ha sido. Los reguladores deberían iniciar una nueva acción antimonopolio en contra de la operación de chantaje llamada Microsoft Corporation[http://techrights.org/2011/04/27/bn-and-changing-the-patent-system/]. Ellos ya saben la dirección de su Don, que está ocupado invirtiendo sus miles de millones en impulsar las patentes y/o sus monopolios y la reescritura de su biografía (mediante la compra de la prensa).[http://techrights.org/wiki/index.php/Gates_Foundation_Critique]

“Esta cosa antimonopolio golpeará más. No hemos cambiado nuestras prácticas de negocios en absoluto.” -Bill Gates, 1995

    Why the so-called 'Linux Foundation', a nonprofit that acts more like a PAC controlled by proprietary software companies and people who don't even use Linux, is increasingly becoming a Linux-hostile front group



  21. Honesty and Collaboration Make Free Software Stronger, Microsoft is Inherently a Misfit

    In spite of all the lies Microsoft and its Web sites spew out on a daily basis, nothing has really changed and Microsoft is still attacking Software Freedom (mostly from the inside nowadays, helped by FUD proxies such as WhiteSource and Snyk)



  22. Patent Certainty Waning, But That's Still OK for Patent Trolls

    Patent maximalism remains a threat to everyone but patent lawyers (and patent office chiefs who measure their own performance only by the number of patents granted); best served are the patent trolls who extrajudicially attack already-impoverished parties behind closed doors

    Typical media distortions and signs that Microsoft already uses GitHub for censorship of Free/Open Source software that does not fit Microsoft's interests



  24. Canonical is Turning Ubuntu Into a More Proprietary Deviant of GNU/Linux

    Ubuntu is becoming more 'Ubinary'; binaries without their source code available are packed up and cooked up for (or baked into) the ISO; this may be good for widespread adoption, but it's not an advancement of freedom, a capitulation rather

  26. The Problem Isn't Women or Minorities in Free Software But Particular Corporations That Exploit or Steer or Hijack Their Agenda

    If technical issues are being disguised using colours and genders (among other things), then it's important to highlight who's behind it (what company/ies) rather than fling back insults at people because it makes things worse
