Compaq Resumes Netscape Bundling

Thursday February 4th, 1999

Joel Caris writes, "This article says how Compaq has resumed bundling Netscape with many of its PCs."

Well, interesting news, but Compaq's motives are definitely in question. Are they doing this for their customers' benefit, or for the benefit of MS in their ongoing antitrust trial (which, BTW, they botched yet again today)? Is it coincidence that Compaq's senior vice president John Rose will be testifying in the case in a few weeks' time?

>>>the compaq bundling is super news because it's gonna be awhile until Netscape 5 comes<<<

Well, it won't come on all Compaq computers. Netscape needs to get their software on more computers. They also have lost some mind-share. They need to re-gain that IMO.
