MSFT (Microsoft) vs. DOJ (Department of Justice)
An SI Board Since December 1997
Posts SubjectMarks Bans Symbol
185 7 0 MSFT
Emcee:  Doug Fowler Type:  Unmoderated
This thread is intended to discuss the issues surrounding Microsoft and the claims being made against it by the Department of Justice.

This may well turn out to be the most interesting court case of 1998. What will be the ramifications for Microsoft? Has Microsoft overstepped its boundaries? Does Microsoft have a monopoly with Windows 95? Will Microsoft be forced to separate IE from Windows 98?

Where will all this lead? Will the government end up breaking up Microsoft?

Has Microsoft underestimated the DOJ? Has Microsoft finally met its match?

Opinions from both sides are welcome.
