Got it. Adobe's placement of a button to allow you to print to Fedex/Kinkos from Reader is a big deal, but the strangely unremovable Internet Explorer icon on the Windows desktop isn't an unfair power flex.

You know, in retrospect, if I were a MS shareholder, I think at this point I would have preferred the solution that Windows get split into five different companies starting at the same place. What has Apple done to gain so much cash? Simply [arguably] be cool. A monolithic Windows can't afford to concentrate solely on looking cool. That would change its corporate culture, and such a change would clash with the cultures of many of its users. But one of five Windows producers sure could have. Another could go straight security, etc. A few would do well, and could potentially nip Apple in the bud.
