Cry me a river... antitrust laws are the reason why our internet connection is not 100Mbits, windows have viruses, cars don't run on water, and pretty much slows and will continue to slow how fast we advance technologically. How is antitrust helping the consumer? i.e. How is blocking Microsoft from integrating an antivirus into their OS so other companies can sell theirs benefit the consumer? I can only imagine how technologically advance we would be if we didn’t have these stupid laws.
