Re: Microsoft Backs Law Banning Google Apps From Schools

said by FF4m3 :

From The Register:

... Redmond should sell on its strengths, not try and lock out competition by supporting such moves as this Massachusetts law.

As if Google, Apple, and so many other big members of the corporate universe don't themselves use every legal venue and lever of legislative influence to tilt governmental/legal power in their own directions. It's become a never-ending, pitched battle between dinosaurs... with all the rest of us trying desperately not to get crushed with the thrashing tails or stomped by the huge legs, since we all have to live with the unintended consequences of whatever the outcome of the contests. Bills like these should pass or fail on their own merits or flaws, independent of the preferences or the likes/dislikes of Microsoft, Google, Apple and the whole lot of them...
