> You mean like browsers in iOS and Chromebooks? Here again, MS came last, others paved the way to full lock-in.

"""Safari is the default browser pre-installed on every new iOS device, but there are plenty of alternatives, ranging from Google Chrome and Opera's various mobile offerings to Dolphin, Atomic and Ghostery."""

"""Firefox on Chrome OS. Opera Mini on Chrome OS. Dolphin Browser running on Chrome OS. Ghostery running on Chrome OS."""

Windows Phone: """first launched in October 2010 with Windows Phone 7"""

ChromeOS: """Initial release June 15, 2011"""

I am not sure why you think that "MS came last", nor that "others paved the way", but then this is the world of 'alternate facts'.
