The Register heeft een uitgelekt rapport te pakken gekregen waarin aanbevelingen worden gedaan om Bill in 4 stukken te hakken. Hier een stukkie uit dit pretbericht:
A 40 page secret report by the software industry's trade organisation calls for the break-up of Microsoft, should it lose its antitrust case. The Software and Information Industry Association, formerly known as the Software Publishers Association, recommends in the report that Microsoft be broken up into three or four 'Baby Bills' with identical product lines.
The status of the report, which was leaked yesterday, is unclear. It seems to have been approved by the Association's board, and is in the hands of the Department of Justice as well as the press. But over the past few years there has been considerable infighting within the Association over the Microsoft issue. Executive director Ken Wasch and much of the board are heavily critical of Microsoft, but Microsoft is the group's largest member, and has fought back hard.
