Even with the release of Windows 7 only a few months away, some users still want to start at Windows XP. The anti-monopoly service in Russia is launching an investigation into Microsoft due to a dwindling availability of Windows XP even as demand remains high. The belief is that XP is being taken off the market in an attempt to force consumers to buy Windows Vista. Microsoft representatives in Moscow say they haven't been contacted by the authorities on this matter, and that they cooperate on all anti-monopoly issues. Microsoft has been fined over 1 billion Euros this decade in relation to antitrust violations.

On a similar note, I will be suing Ford due to the dwindling availability of the Model T.
