What, you want to return to the libertarian utopianism of the 90s? The bloated and automated nature of FAANG makes the system much more fragile. Such articles only flatter them when in fact the admin is not in control anymore and daemons are running wild.

You don't remember how Microsoft fell in the 90s after being deemed "too big to fail"? They never got to that point again.

1) Microsoft is still bloated and is still on their campaign of eating up others.
2) Breaking up these bloated monstrosities from time to time is done to extend the lifespan of the system. "Too big to fail" means catastrophe when they do fail, it threatens to bring down the whole system with it. It's not a coincidence that idealistic neoliberals like Elizabeth Warren and Margrethe Vestager (Competition Commissioner of EU) are the faces of regulatory measures.
3) The dream of small entrepreuners is a libertarian fantasy. Not even their heroes believe in it. If you talk to start-ups they almost always say their ultimate goal is being bought by FAANG.

Irrelevant.

With not much success, if any.

I'm not sure what point #3 has to do with anything I've said.

They have the biggest OS share and have long been creeping into other markets under other brands.
>With not much success, if any.
Github comes to mind. There are other not so small fish.

But all that is not really important, because even if Microsoft "fell" and is now irrelevant, it was replaced by FAANG. The principle has stayed the same. If anything, big tech has only become bigger.

>I'm not sure what point #3 has to do with anything I've said.

The 3rd point is concerning the fact we will not go back to small tech and big tech is here to stay.

And what is your response to the 2nd point?

That's Android (Google).

>Github comes to mind.

I'll give you that. It's a good thing alternatives came up after the sell.

>And what is your response to the 2nd point?

I don't disagree with it, that's why I didn't mention it.
