"Microsoft chairman Bill Gates, asked in a television interview if he would fight against resolving a landmark antitrust case by breaking up his firm, said he would be willing to discuss 'any sort of resolution.'

'We are very curious about any sort of resolution that could come along, we'll sit and be willing to discuss that,' he said when asked on ABC's Good Morning America if he would fight tooth and nail any attempt to break up the Redmond, Wash.-based software giant that made Gates the world's wealthiest man.

The interview question, posed via remote hook-up from the Comdex trade show in Las Vegas, followed a Time Magazine interview published earlier this week in which Gates twice refused to rule out breaking up the company to settle government antitrust charges."
