An Economics lesson for the computer industry

Joel Spolsky lays out a nice economics lesson on micro economics for the hardware and software industry, and the accompanying implications that are sometimes ignored by the likes of Sun to their demise. One of the key concepts he discusses is the criticality of understanding your products "complementers" and what complementer pricing can do to your own product's pricing. Well worth reading this "oldy but goody".
