Abstract

This essay is a reaction to the Department of Justice's action in curbing Microsoft; it suggests that it would be better to whiteant rather than to bulldoze Microsoft, and that by implementing in standard hardware the underlying windowing capability that contributes so much to Window's complexity the way would be opened for competing systems to be offered.
