We endured 12-hours of inconsequential bickering about definitions. At the end of it, Microsoft received a de-facto immunity in exchange for items of little value that did not do anything to curtail their behaviour. That only exemplifies how the anti-trust laws became supportive of monopolies.

Bill and Microsoft definitely felt the pressure though. He had to say everything right for 12-hours, it was the opposite of inconsequential for someone interested in Microsoft themselves and how they skirted anti-trust rules and other regulations - a master class.They actually legitimately went after him. Nothing changing isn't true, they don't even go through with these kind of depositions anymore, that means it's gotten worse.
