"The monopoly is under attack"
Dumb move boyo.
It is one thing to be accused of being a monopoly, but publicly claiming to be a monopoly is another thing. There are laws against such things.
Attack is a word suggesting the problem is due to outside hostiles that need to be repulsed.
That is surely wrong.
MS primarily has interal problem, not external ones. Microsoft is rotting from inside.
