InformationWeek Weblog: Days After Entering 12-Step Program, Microsoft Falls Off Wagon

"Whatever happened to the '12 tenets,' announced just 10 days ago, that were supposed to help a seemingly humbled and repentant Microsoft assume a more ethical stance toward allowing competition? Could it be that its self-imposed 12-step program has already failed to cure Microsoft of its monopolistic impulses?

First case in point: the amusing news--posted by a TechWeb reporter--that the preview of Microsoft's newly renovated home page provided Internet Explorer users with a new search tool and site guide, while users of the open-source Firefox browser were insulted with a 'We're sorry, the page you requested could not be found' error message."

See below for other similar nonsense. They never got on the wagon in the first place. Talk is cheap.
