"The email is in an odd, hard-to-read font, so if anyone knows
the names are wrong, please let me know. We aim to get it right. I
have not corrected any typos.
"We are working to complete our Comes exhibit collection so you
can help us make it more easily searchable, and we also have all
the exhibits that were posted in the Minnesota antitrust case
against Microsoft, Gordon v. Microsoft and we'll be including them.
This exhibit is from that collection, actually. You can view it
here, from our Gordon v. Microsoft permanent page we are working on
again, and if you click on the graphic, it will get bigger. Click
again and it gets small. So if I'm quieter than usual for a bit,
that will be why.
"I wanted to mention that it was an anonymous commenter who
found this. Sometimes people tell me not to allow anonymous
comments, but this is why I never agree.
"You might find it interesting to compare this memo with Bill
Gates' July 20, 1995 letter to Novell's Robert Frankenberg,
Microsoft's Exhibit 15 [PDF] in its collection attached to its
Cross Motion for Summary Judgment. It's a hoot. Frankenberg had
complained about undocumented calls, and Gates writes that both the
FTC and the DOJ has "thoroughly investigated" the allegations and
found them to be "not provable". That was then. This is now. Here's
my favorite part of the letter:"
