If, by magic, Microsofts monopoly disappeared and all their software was now shareware, at HALF their current selling price would MS survive?

ie, Shareware: where you download it, use it, and if you like it, you pay for it.

for this poll, we will assume 100% complaince. ie, if you really liked it, you'd send in the money.

for this poll, we will also assume the the price is exactly HALF of what the items sells for at street prices. In other words, are microsoft products worth half of what they charge for them if we were allowed to view and test them out first.
