"Microsoft told a U.S. appeals court Monday that it did not
illegally stifle competitors as the judges peppered lawyers for the
software giant and the government with pointed questions about
practices that led to the company's court-ordered breakup."
"I don't see how you can get a reversal," Judge David Tatel told
Microsoft's lawyer at one point in early arguments that focused on
Microsoft's battles with Netscape, its chief rival in the Internet
"Government lawyers came under equally tough questions about why
they went after Microsoft."
