Everyone is all concerned about  APR 04 2000

Everyone is all concerned about what will happen to the stock market if Microsoft get broken up. I don't get it. If Microsoft gets broken up, there will be two or three smaller, more nimble Microsofts running around, each of which will have the market cap of the original company in five years or less. And no big Microsoft means more competition in the marketplace, and competition is good for business, right? I really don't see the need for concern.

And anyway, why doesn't someone come up with a creative solution to punish Microsoft....like them open sourcing their browser or something. Are you listening, Tim? You could make something like this happen. At the very least, it would make an interesting discussion.
