[Gllug] You can still stop the next M$ monopoly?!

Just found this from ZDnet:

David Coursey's ideas as to why M$ will still be a monopoly and how one might 
stop it dead in it's tracks.

IMHO what he says it's true, however I don't see a way of achieving stopping 
them. It all sounds a bit dodgy, making someone wait until their competitors 
are ready to compete and all that. It just doesn't sound like an "open" 
market place anymore.

Although I do understand the reasons, there doesn't seem to be a "leg to 
stand on"? Or is there... .
