Of course, Microsoft's problem in New Zealand is compounded by the anti-trust case, which was very well covered in the NZ media and which proved Microsoft was a scavenging monopoly ("predatory monopoly" implies they actually did some serious work, whereas the habit of waiting until someone else establishes a marketplace then stealing it, is the work of a scavenger. Read Schiller "Serengeti Lion" and Kruuk "Spotted Hyena". U of Chicago Press.).

And New Zealand has had to put up with our own monopoly, TelecomNZ, which is not only a monopoly, it is offensively and grotesquely so, and also lacks the wit to invest in maintaining its infrastructure.

So, NZers have good reason to vote No. We understand only too well how useless a monopoly is.
