According to what PC Mag's John Dvorak is saying, it seems Microsoft just can't stand it when they're not the absolute monopoly in every aspect of the tech industry. Especially so when the competition is a free, proven technology that benefits everybody in a notable way. And the fact that such technology benefits everyone is no reason for MS to hold back the smear campaigns, either. No, I'm not referring to Linux (although, 'if the shoe fits'...), but rather BitTorrent. Of late, everyone's favorite monopoly has been especially busy spreading lies about BitTorrent, e.g. "it'll get you infected with spyware!", and pushing their own torrent alternative, Avalanche. Unfortunately, it seems that Avalanche is nothing more than vaporware at this point. Microsoft, when will the masses tire of your wanton ways?
