Fair enough. So if google is really better at everything it tries to do, is it okay that they effectivly push everybody else out of the market?
If so, then what's the difference.

It's okay to have a monopoly if it's a 'good monopoly' (with the added bonus that they tell us they're not evil)?

It's an issue of anti-competition, I think.

Microsoft leveraged their monopoly to prevent others from participating int he operating system space by preventing vendors from selling any operating system but theirs (in a variety of ways).

Consider what is good for the consumer: anti-competitive practices that prevent any hope of improving a product line at all, or a competition waged entirely on whether or not the merits of the product hold up to user demand?

It's okay because somebody who actually has a better idea than Google could push them out of the market. At least if they execute it well.

...except that Microsoft was pretty much handed their market share on a plate (by a naive IBM in 1981), and merely played a good game of maintaining lock-in from generation to generation using anti-competitive tactics. Google *earned* their market share with a superior product.

Heh, my spoken language is sometimes shocking for people. I hate to think what they'd make of my thought language 8-)

Microsoft, not content to just rip off other people's technologies and claim them as their own, even do the same for commercial ideas.

The nazis only victimized about nine million people. Microsoft has victimized over a BILLION. It isn't even in the same league. Microsoft has committed *far* more crimes against humanity.
