I hate Microsoft as much as the next guy - my name is MACHUGGER, for god's sake, but I don't see how it's anti-trust for Microsoft to put whatever it wants on its startup screen.
Is it antitrust for NBC to promote its own shows when hundreds of millions tune in for the Olympics? Or, Fox to promote Fox shows on American Idol? How about ABC with the Superbowl?
So why can't Microsoft do a little self-promotion in that space?
I think it's annoying and if Apple ever does that, I'll raise h*ll but I don't see how it's antitrust behavior from Microsoft.
PS is anybody else sick and tired of hearing the words ''law suit'' in the tech industry?
