Microsoft may start charging extra for software that works.

Well, even US Department of Justice couldn't beat Microsoft. Sure, some people may file a lawsuit or two, I would feel pretty confident if I were Microsoft.

When you have the sort of legal and money war chest they do, then you can be pretty confident about most things. Though i dont beleive that either side really won in the DOJ trial, MS had to make some payout did they not?

Not really. MS is likely to be forced to pay some fine to EU and also make some medications in their application in EU, BUT they can do pretty much anything in US and they were never fined. I recall they offered free (MS) software in some states (in US), but it was such a joke. Free software? Free software produced by MS and that's penalty?
