Default Win 8 Security Bundle An Antitrust Magnet

Damn, not this crap again? Microsoft could be saddled with antitrust lawsuits for bundling its Windows Defender security suite with the upcoming Windows 8 operating system (OS), as such an act may be considered an abuse of a dominant position within the industry, lawyers said. My opinion? Don't build your entire business around another company's product and you wont have this issue. What happens if Windows 8 ships without any need for security at all (heh, quit laughing...it could happen), is Microsoft going to be sued for putting Symantec, McAfee and everyone else out of business?
