On Being Reduced To Tears

Matt Warren has a very thoughtful piece regarding the current EU rulings against Microsoft. I replied to his posting but would like to repost it here -

Keep in mind that the anti-Microsoft decision came from the EU's judicial system - a "country" which is still having a very difficult time formulating a constitution and they call themselves a democracy!

Regarding EU's own software - there is the huge monster system called SAP which is in need of an aenama and there's Linux which is a ripped-off version of Unix/Xinu that was freely available in educational institutions back in the 70s and 80s.

So much for EU innovation.
