U.S. Government Sides with Microsoft in Antitrust Battle
So a group of pesky states (hello, California -- we know why you're here) wants
to keep the consent decree covering Microsoft's nasty little habit of being
a monopolist alive for five more years. Microsoft says, as you might imagine,
that it's time to put the whole consent decree business to bed.
Well, Redmond now has a pretty
powerful ally in trying to convince a U.S. District Court to do just that:
the U.S. Department of Justice itself, star of the Microsoft lawsuit that started
this whole thing.
