Microsoft Ruling to Come Today

Monday April 3rd, 2000

The Associated Press is reporting that Judge Thomas Penfield Jackson will issue a ruling in the Microsoft anititrust suit after the financial markets close today. The notice of the ruling follows the failure of settlement talks mediated by Richard A. Posner of the U.S. Court of Appeals in Chicago.

It's fair to consider Mozilla an indirect consequence of Microsoft's actions in the browser space. So, I have a hypothetical question to pose to you. What do you think the browser situation would look like today if Mozilla wasn't made Open Source -- if Netscape had held onto their code and produced it without outside help? What would the last two years have been like? Where would the browsers be today?

Thanks a lot.. Bugzilla certainly leaves some things to be desired when it comes to bug hunts.

I cant beleive the soonest they are gonna have that done is M16, and they have a NS release tommorow.. Hmm. Very surprised that no one on the dev team finds that to be a higher priority (read: annoying) bug.

Oh well.. Patrick
