The Chronicle of Higher Education exposes Microsoft's role in America's colleges and universities. The company that overwhelmingly dominates the market for computer operating systems is eager to dominate software sales to America's colleges as well, with its Windows 95 operating system and Windows NT network-server software, its browsing spreadsheet, and work processing applications, even its own digital encyclopedia. Some fear Microsoft is using its seemingly unlimited resources to create a monopoly in campus software sales, and if Microsoft is not somehow checked, higher education could find itself beholden to the corporate masters of the very technologies that colleges and universities helped to create and popularize.
