No Pity, No Praise - Part 2



[cross-posted at Austro-Athenian Empire]

In a previous post I expressed ambivalence about the conflict between the villainous Microsoft and the still more villainous E.U. Now it turns out that the E.U.'s regulatory policies may actually benefit Microsoft more than they hurt it; thanks to Charles Johnson for sending me a link to this story. As is so often the case (e.g. antitrust), government policies advertised as adverse to corporate interests turn out to be corporate welfare in disguise.

No ambivalence necessary -- they're all in it together.
