Continuing my anti-Microsoft (who, me?) rant of recent days, here's an article about Kodak being locked out of Windows XP. Apparently, Windows XP -- by default -- always uses Microsoft's photo editing software, and always links to Microsoft-partnered companies (who have to pay a fee for the privilege) when people look for online photo processing. This even happens when Kodak software is installed. Now, call me cynical, but this sounds like a monopoly being used to crush competition in other areas. Judge, are you listening?
