The Globalisation Institute offers strong logical arguements for the legal unbundling of PCs and operating systems within the EU single market. This simple step, which would both allow consumers the right to choose their operatin system would also make it clear to them just how much the Windows system is costing them, allowing consumers to make informed choices and introduce real competition into a market monopolised by a single supplier for 20 year at 95% dominance.
This is not just a geeky subject, this is a real issue of free competition and improved customer choice. I commend you to read both the two page report and also some additional rebuttals of the points raised against it.
If we live in a global free market world, why should Microsoft be exempt?
