Microsoft was never "convicted" (I think you mean "found liable" but they
weren't found liable either. ) in the US DoJ case.
http://www.usdoj.gov/atr/cases/ms_index.htm

Microsoft was never said to be a monopoly by the DoJ
http://www.usdoj.gov/atr/cases/ms_index.htm

You don't know or you are pretending not to know what a monopoly is.

You don't know, don't care, or are pretending not to know that civil case
defendants are not convicted ever anywhere in any court in this country at
least.

In the case
STATE OF NEW YORK, et al.,
Plaintiffs
v.
MICROSOFT CORPORATION,
Defendant.
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA
Civil Action No. 98-1233 (CKK)

The court found Microsoft liable for violating two provisions of the Sherman
act.
Again they were not "convicted"
Again they were not even accused of being a monopoly.

The product sold to the customer in your motherboard case and I suspect the
one you are using are labled "not for resale".  I am using the full retail
version.

The EULA on my drive has the transfer information in section 13.  So yet
another version of the EULA this one is even different from the hard copy
that came with the product..

Seems I remember you saying "people only hear what they want to hear"

Let me try prose or an extended metaphore following your example and I do
hope it is as clear as yours were.

Fedora is a bird that sings in the forest while Windows is a stable
operating system.
