"...if you're a Microsoft investor, you're getting screwed

man who couldn't admit he was wrong."
"Because Gates refused to quietly settle three years ago, and
refused again this week, he set his company up for Judge Jackson's
blistering rebuke. Though an appeals process could take years,
there's a more immediate and damaging outcome you should know
"Because there is now a finding of fact and a ruling, the
floodgates are open wider than ever. Consider:
100-115 class-action lawsuits have been filed against Microsoft
since Judge Jackson issued his findings of fact in November
The company is still under investigation for alleged antitrust
violations in Europe
Yesterday's decision will spur even more filings
Lawyers will cite Judge Jackson's ruling as precedent -- at
least until/unless a higher court overturns it"
