An Associate Press article on USA Today reports that government officials and competitors are growing concerned with Microsoft‘s newest operating system, Windows XP, due out October 25. Included with the new OS will be Internet chat software, a DVD player, and CD burning abilities for personal music CDs. “This is a movie that many people have seen before. The direction Windows XP, .NET and Hailstorm all go in is to continue Microsoft’s desktop monopoly and we think that’s bad for consumers,” said John Buckley, AOL vice president in the report.
