ES: Microsoft Todavía Abusa de su Plataforma Monopólica

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

  1. A Parade of Fake News About the UPC Does Not Change the General Consensus or the Simple Facts

    European Patents (EPs) from the EPO are granted in violation of the EPC; Courts are now targeted by António Campinos and the minions he associates with (mostly parasitic litigation firms and monopolists), for they want puppets for “judges” and for invalid patents to be magically rendered “valid” and “enforceable”



  2. Welcome to 2022: Intentional Lies Are 'Benefits' and 'Alternative Facts'

    A crooks-run EPO, together with the patent litigation cabal that we’ve dubbed ‘Team UPC’ (it has nothing to do with science or with innovation), is spreading tons of misinformation; the lies are designed to make the law-breaking seem OK, knowing that Benoît Battistelli and António Campinos are practically above the law, so perjury as well as gross violations of the EPC and constitutions won’t scare them (prosecution as deterrence just isn’t there, which is another inherent problem with the UPC)



  3. From Software Eating the World to the Pentagon Eating All the Software

    “Software is eating the world,” according to Marc Andreessen (co-founder of Netscape), but the Empire Strikes Back (not the movie, the actual empire) by hijacking all code by proxy, via Microsoft, just as it grabbed a lot of the world’s communications via Skype, bypassing the world's many national telecoms; coders need to fight back rather than participate in racist (imperial) shams such as GitHub

  8. Computer Users Should be Operators, But Instead They're Being Operated by Vendors and Governments

    Computers have been turned into hostile black boxes (unlike Blackbox) that distrust the person who purchased them; moreover, from a legislative point of view, encryption (i.e. computer security) is perceived and treated by governments like a threat instead of something imperative — a necessity for society’s empowerment (privacy is about control and people in positions of unjust power want total and complete control)



  9. Peak Code — Part I: Before the Wars

    Article/series by Dr. Andy Farnell: "in the period between 1960 and 2060 people had mistaken what they called "The Internet" for a communications system, when it had in fact been an Ideal and a Battleground all along - the site of the 100 years info-war."

    In Gemini (or the Web as seen through Gemini clients such as Kristall) the user comes first; it's not sites/capsules that tell the user how pages are presented/rendered, as they decide only on structural/semantic aspects



  13. The Future of Techrights

    Futures are difficult to predict, but our general vision for the years ahead revolves around more community involvement and less (none or decreased) reliance on third parties, especially monopolistic corporations, mostly because they oppress the population via the network and via electronic devices

  25. Another Video IBM Does Not Want You to Watch

    It seems very much possible that IBM (or someone close to IBM) is trying to purge me from Twitter, so let’s examine what they may be trying to distract from. As we put it 2 years ago, "Watson" is a lot more offensive than those supposedly offensive words IBM is working to purge; think about those hundreds of Red Hat workers who are black and were never told about ethnic purges of blacks facilitated by IBM (their new boss).

    When many services are reliant on the integrity of a single, very tiny MicroSD card you're only moments away from 2 days of intensive labour (recovery, investigation, migration, and further coding); we've learned our lessons and took advantage of this incident to upgrade the operating system, double the storage space, even improve the code slightly (for compatibility with newer systems)
