Microsoft is Killing Employment through it's strategy to gain Monopoly.

Microsft's strategy to Monopolize the market is "Extend, Embrace, Extinguish". A classic example is Nokia mobile division.

  1. Microsoft Extended help to Nokia - In reality Microsoft injected it's agent into Nokia's CEO position.
  2. Microsoft Embraced Nokia Mobile division - Microsoft Agent sold Nokia's Phone division to Microsoft.
  3. Microsoft Extinguished Nokia Mobile division - Microsoft killed all non-Windows projects at Nokia, and kicked out Nokia employees from Nokia Mobile division.
