    You could be right, though I still prefer "being shamelessly ripped off".

    I didn't support the EU case against Microsoft, I thought it to be wholly
    without merit, but this kind of price-scalping actually makes accusations of
    monopoly behaviour much easier for opponents to Microsoft to prove.

    The EU scalping was over the inclusion of additional software not price
    scalping. The Media Player had to be removed and there was great contention
    over the Internet Explorer also. I know the EU (as do some states) need to
    raise money because they have reached the limit on 'taxation' and this seems
    to be the new way to raise funds to feed the bloated bureaucracies. In the
    states it is lawsuits over tobacco, fatty fast foods, etc. which I'm sure
    yours will get around to.

    I know what the EU case was about. I'm suggesting the new price gouging with
    Vista will not improve Microsoft's position.
    Indeed. It seems govt. everywhere wants to encourage business to be
    successful but punish it if it gets too successful.

    Indeed, governments everywhere encourage business to make profits -
    and then take their part from those profits (taxation, fees...).
