Interesting Article on Microsfot in New Republic (fwd)
This was sent me from another listserv:
THE NEW REPUBLIC published an interesting, albeit short article on the
current validity of the Department of Justice's case against Microsoft.
"Breaking Windows: Microsoft's market manipulations" by Ian Ayres,
Townsend Professor of Law at Yale, reads as very fair reporting that
claims, in the end, that MS is indeed breaking the antitrust laws.
Interestingly, Ayres suggests that perhaps Internet Explorer should be
allowed to be intergrated into the desktop, but then so should Netscape.
Cynics out there know of many reasons why this wouldn't work, but it's
exciting to see the mainstream begin to actually take a serious look at
MS and it's failings, rather than just the "Mac zealots."
Unfortunately, the article isn't on the web (well, i haven't looked for
it, but I doubt it is), but it is in the November 17, 1997 issue of THE
NEW REPUBLIC, pgs. 18-19 (Bright red cover).
