    I was just wondering. So many people blast Microsoft for being a monopoly, and they criticise what they see as a large, corporate entity running around, doing what it pleases.

    So, at what point does Google go from the geeky alternative to "the man," to being another one of the large, corporate dollar-mongers?

    possibly because Google is currently less of a black box, ATM, you don't really have any idea whats going on behind MS, and its all buried so deep in lawyer ******** that you cant really work it out without a degree in law

    I guess Google could well get to the same point, but ATM i don't see them being there, and their motto of "do no evil" is definitely different from M$'s motto (which seems to be to drive all rivals out of business)
