Microsoft's Monopoly is Not Sustainable, Monopolist and Monopoly Abuser Bill Gates is Being Pushed Out

"A lot of people make that analogy that competing with Bill Gates is like playing hardball. I'd say it's more like a knife fight."

--Gary Clow



Summary: The most criminal elements of Microsoft are being pushes out by investors, and it's no longer just Ballmer

BILL Gates (including his pseudo 'charity') is "successful" in the same sense that Genghis Khan was successful. He sure spread his mentality and imposed his will upon others, no matter how crudely. To glorify the "success" of Bill Gates is like adding glamour to the Mafia.



Gates, who is largely responsible for Microsoft's competition crimes (as many documents reveal), is still too much of a control freak in the board, so investors want him out. As a British paper put it yesterday:

Unnamed investors said to be lobbying the board for the departure of the technology giant's co-founder


If Gates is as shrewd as people claim he is, then how come Microsoft is losing its monopoly while he is still heavily involved? As one writer put it this week:

Three years after Windows Phone and a year after Windows 8, businesses are testing -- and using -- rivals instead


Windows is no longer holding a majority market share. Android/Linux is the market leader. Microsoft is trying to deny this while taxing Android with patents. Galen Gruman from IDG has a lot more to say on this subject.

Ballmer is stepping away, but just like Gates he plans to stay rather close (from the outside). Those two bullies are largely responsible for illegally obtaining and maintaining a monopoly, using crimes such as bribery. We are unlikely to ever see them in prison, but we might at the very least see them totally dissociated from Microsoft one day. Watch what Microsoft's crimes have done to Finland alone.
