 "Microsoft can do what it likes with THEIR *platform*! if YOU
   _choose_ not to agree with their policies for use on THEIR
   platform, YOU can _choose_ to go elsewhere."

Absolutely... on THEIR *XBox* platform.

Microsoft leveraged anti-competitive practices to squeeze out competition on the *PC* platform with MS DOS.  Therefore Microsoft gained a monopoly on the *PC* platform by unfair business practices.  Very different situation.  Had Microsoft started with the full stack like Apple did, the answer would have been different (and history too - I doubt they would have been as successful).
