Microsoft is not the result of many mergers and acquisitions, rather the product of a rapidly growing market for computers in the home and workplace.

True but you missed the point.

"...                                            And in seven
years, the Bush Justice Department has not brought a single
monopolization case." -- Statement of Senator Barack Obama for the American Antitrust Institute

"Monopolization case" as in:

The Sherman Antitrust Act (1890)
Section 2. Monopolizing trade a felony; penalty

Every person who shall monopolize, or attempt to monopolize, or combine or conspire with any other person or persons, to monopolize any part of the trade or commerce among the several States, or with foreign nations, shall be deemed guilty of a felony, and, on conviction thereof, shall be punished by fine not exceeding $10,000,000 if a corporation, or, if any other person, $350,000, or by imprisonment not exceeding three years, or by both said punishments, in the discretion of the court.


With the Bush administration gone we could see competitors emboldened for the first time since 1998.
