When the Wall Street Journal says you're an evil monopoly, you're an evil monopoly. Robert Bork and Kenneth Starr (yes, the Robert Bork and Kenneth Starr) write:

"While trumpeting last week's 'victory' in the Court of Appeals, Microsoft executives would do well to recall the words of King Pyrrhus after his famous battle with the Romans: 'One more such victory and we are lost.' The truth behind the spin is that Microsoft's victory was not even pyrrhic. A quotation from George Armstrong Custer would be more appropriate, if only he'd been available for a press conference after Little Big Horn. The government won on the central issue in the case: Microsoft was held to have monopolized the operating-system market in violation of the Sherman Act."
