Well, you said it yourself, M$ is evil and millions of people are 
enslaved to it. So I for one care very much how much power they have.  I 
think most of us do.  Can something more evil replace them? It's a thing 
to be concerned about, of course, but I'd say no, the age of the 
monopoly is over.  The sad thing is that even as the Empire crumbles, 
imperial thinking (as with Gnome) infects Linux.
