Microsoft Break-up Broken

Microsoft Won't Be Broken Up is an Associated Press story (thanks Adrenaline Vault) with the news that there will be no further follow-up to the anti-trust-related break up of Microsoft ordered last year (story) that was subsequently reversed by an appeals court (story) which vacated the breakup order "on remedies, remand the case for reconsideration of the remedial order." According the new report, "The Bush administration, reversing the Clinton White House legal strategy against Microsoft, told the software manufacturer Thursday it no longer seeks to have the company broken up. The department also said it will not pursue the bundling issues in its protracted antitrust suit against the software giant."

I completely agree with apeman. I have lived in America for over eight years now, and I am extremely unimpressed with the american people. Most everyone I meet is pretty dull and dead intellectually spiritually and emotionally (go ahead and take that appart however you will ;] ). Very little national unity (You can always find unity if you look hard enough, but in comparison to european countries the findings will not be significant) Since I have experienced a move from one country to another and I see how difficult it would be for any american to understand the international european community.... certainly it would be nearly impossible to understand the differences between americans and europeans if you were brought up in suburbs of maryland.... Europeans have a broader outlook on the situation, history and developements in the world.

All this is considering that almost all my american aquaintances are those with american college education, people from the more fortunate american families...

heh.. oh yeah and keep in mind that statements llike "american educational system is stupid" will yield nothing but futile endless polemics... Asking people to "prove" the statements is arguably sillier than making the statements, because sufficient evidance is not possible. ( i am nto sure if any "evidence" at all is possible )

Nobody (who has actual opinions) will leave discussions like this saying "ahhhh , you convinced me to change my opinion.. I changed my opion was because the arguments you layed out were superior and had solid proof... you found a loophole in my reasoning ..." hmm well it might depend on the age of the reader some..

the best we can do is make our arguments constructive... hopefully we all change a tad bit after reading these texts.

pardon the poor spelling...
