There was a time period where Microsoft was settling local antitrust suits left and right. It's been awhile, but they've just settled on in Minnesota. We won't know the details until July, however.
Rob Enderle has written an interesting read about Microsoft’s six biggest blunders. I don't agree with all them, in fact I hadn't heard of one of them (#1). And you can't blame Brian Valentine for Vista; there is plenty of blame to spread there. But he has a nice list of consumer missteps there, something I've been discussing lately.
