"Judge Thomas Penfield Jackson may have found Microsoft guilty
of many of the antitrust violations of which the government has
accused the company, but, thus far, he hasn't sided entirely with
the government's recommendations for crafting a remedy."
"In the morning session of a one-day remedy hearing in U.S.
District Court here on Wednesday, Jackson questioned the U.S.
Department of Justice, state attorneys general and Microsoft
lawyers fairly extensively on how a government-suggested breakup of
the Redmond, Wash., company would work...."
"Tell me why (two separate Microsoft companies) would
effectively inspire competition," Jackson queried O'Connor.
Jackson noted that, as pointed out in a friend-of-the-court
brief filed jointly over the weekend by The Computer and
Communications Industry Association and Software and Information
Industry Association, the government plan could create two separate
monopolies with no incentive to compete."
