Microsoft: Ruthless Redmond
Microsoft was the first bully to own the tech playground. Pity the company that found itself in Microsoft's crosshairs. The word "ruthless" comes to mind. Remember when Netscape Navigator rose up to challenge Microsoft Internet Explorer in the great browser war? The conflict drew in the Department of Justice and put Bill Gates on the stand. Oh, Netscape isn't around anymore.
A kinder Microsoft exists today, largely because it no longer sits in the driver's seat.
