Russia Drops Microsoft Antitrust Probe
In one of the more hilarious cases of government intervention in the software market, Russia has dropped an antitrust probe that was looking into Microsoft XP.
Really now, Russia. Is this the biggest problem you have on your plate? Is it even a problem compared to everything else going on there? And how can a government that is, shall we say, not the least corrupt in the world seriously carry out this type of "investigation"?
What's funny is that it came to nothing -- which might just tell us something about Russia, Microsoft or both. Discuss.
