Yours (“Don’t Punish Success“) is one of the best dissections of the government’s bizarre case against Microsoft that I’ve read. I’m old enough to recall a similar government attack on IBM several years ago, when IBM was thought to be toobig and powerful. (I also recall that the government purchased IBM computers to track the enormous pile of paperwork involved in its case.)

IBM eventually was constrained not by government action, but bycompetition. In fact, it was almost crushed under its own weight, but has since made a remarkable recovery. Government meddling was entirely unnecessary.
