News: Taiwan forces MS to slash prices and also un-bundle its software to be sold separately instead. This is exactly what MS claimed it couldn't do during the antitrust legal battle in the US.
[...] Microsoft would cut prices by an average of 26.7 percent as part of a settlement to an investigation launched after a consumer backlash against government crackdowns on software piracy.
Consumers said they had been forced to turn to illegal copies because Microsoft had used its virtual monopoly to inflate prices.
They also complained that Microsoft forced buyers to purchase expensive bundles of software rather than picking only the products they desired.
