What do you call a Media Player that is bundled by default, default associated, and fails to completely or usefully uninstalled (after uninstallation the WMP engine is still used for IE)? I call it a monopoly.
When it comes to monopolies I'm far more concerned about others that are government sanctioned and which provide me no choice whatsoever like the water company, the electric company, friggin' Brighthouse cable charging me up the wazoo because there's no real competition in the area and they do everything in their power to stomp out any potential competition.

In comparison to those, MS is a charity and Bill Gates is Mother Theresa.
