Calculator Lawsuit!

Christian Nagel hits the nail on the head with his satire of the European Union's ruling against Microsoft.

Fundamentally, it makes no sense for governments to be in the software design business. As long as competitors can produce software (which they can) and sell it to consumers and computer manufacturers to be distributed on PCs (which they can) I don't see how it is unfair for Microsoft to make similar software and bundle it with the OS. If you accept the right of the EU to do this where do you stop? The only logical point is to have a government document that outlines in (very technical terms) what is and is not an operating system. Of course, it would have to be revised every month as new technologies are created. Ridiculous to the extreme.
