Who is John Galt?

A European Union court ruled Wednesday that Microsoft Corp. must immediately divulge some trade secrets to competitors and produce a version of its flagship Windows operating system stripped of the program that plays music and video.

The EU needs to become less competitive, don't you think? Gosh, wouldn't it be great in an Ayn Rand sort of way if Microsoft just decided to tell the EU to take a flying leap and make do without Microsoft products instead?

Who do you think would blink first?

I'd love to see Microsoft give the EU two choices on Windows: 1) take it, 2) leave it.

Even though I'd love for Microsoft to tell the E.U. to take a flying leap, doing without Windows might give the Axis of Weasels a competitive advantage.
