But on a serious note, if not for government intervention, we would be forced to use Windows right now. You can't tell me that the Microsoft near monopoly was DUE TO the government, as that was a lie before, and it would be a lie now.
In fact, quite honestly, many of us are forced to use Windows at work now.
By the way, the government only FORCES you to pay taxes the way a restaurant FORCES you to pay for the food you just ate. You don't want to pay for that food from that restaurant? Fine, go to another restaurant before you eat their food. You don't want to pay taxes in the United States? Fine. Go to another country before you earn a living in the United States. No one is FORCING you to earn a living here, just like no one is FORCING you to go to a particular restaurant.
