I knew it.. I freekin knew it!! I always thought it was a bad idea to slap this anti-trust suite at M$. Can you imagine it, XP without IE or mediaplayer?. thats like having a porsche without an engine! OK so Microsoft dominate everything, and perfer you to buy there products.. well looking at the competition.. its no wonder! in the end its us consumers that are gonna have to fork out more money, when we shouldnt have to, just because companies like Real worry they cannot compete. Well Real, on previous evidence of your player and its spy software issues.. IS THERE ANY WONDER! I agree competition is good and needed, but not at extra cost to US! the consumer. Give M$ a freekin break! I must be one of the minority that like M$!!!!
