Microsoft 'double locked market'

This is news? MS has been bending people over for two decades!
It was more of a key quote from the article. I thought about nesting the
subject line in between double quotes, but changed my mind. Wasn't Microsoft
declared an illegal/convicted monopoly back in 1999 or 2001? I believe the
context was Netscape Navigator.
