    Redmond-based Microsoft Corp has filed a lawsuit against Canonical for abusing its monopoly. The company says Canonical has removed Internet Explorer and WMP from its uStore.

    "We want Ubuntu users to have choices and by removing our best-selling apps from its uStore, Canonical is restricting choices," said Brad Smith, a clone of Microsoft's general counsel and executive vice president, Legal and Corporate Affairs.

    All this for something that has less than 1% market share. WOW! Btw, didn't know IE and WMP can run on Ubuntu.

    Time Traveler, LOL. Pretty creative though, but unlikely to happen. Would like to see this happen.
