"The stage is set in the Microsoft antitrust case for nothing
more than the continuance of the status quo. The government's final
rebuttal today and U.S. District Judge Thomas Penfield Jackson's
ruling to follow will not end this ongoing saga."
"Gartner would be surprised if U.S. District Judge Thomas
Penfield Jackson's ruling followed with anything less severe than
the Microsoft breakup sought by the government. ... As Microsoft
continues to face ongoing legal battles, competitors such as Sun
Microsystems, America Online, Corel and Red Hat will find increased
opportunities in the marketplace, particularly if the U.S.
Department of Justice and plaintiff states eventually prove
victorious, and Microsoft is broken up."
"...it is important to note that a chief reason Microsoft is
fighting so strenuously is so it can continue to integrate and
bundle its applications, a critical step for its Next Generation
Windows Services (NGWS), Microsoft's next big project."
