Wired: MS: Caldera Can’t Use Programs

“Microsoft will argue in Federal District Court Monday that
Caldera should be barred from entering two versions of Windows 3.1
into evidence in its antitrust case.”

“The two copies of the operating system, one an early beta and
the other a Korean edition, turned up after the discovery process
in the civil case was completed.”

“Caldera claims the programs support its charge that Microsoft
manipulated Windows 3.1 with error messages and bugs to convince
users to dump DR-DOS. The company bought DR-DOS, once a serious
challenger to MS-DOS, for US$400,000 from Novell in 1996 and
immediately went to court.”
