Hmm...ik vind dat het zo onderhand wel weer eens tijd is voor een leuk nieuwsberichtje over de Microsoft rechtzaak. Moet je zien wat Bill nu weer gedaan heeft:
A top IBM executive testified in the Microsoft antitrust case today that Microsoft made threats against PC makers who were considering IBM's OS/2 operating system.
Garry Norris, who was IBM's lead negotiator in securing Windows operating system licensing agreements from Microsoft, also said that IBM saw a sharp increase in the royalties it paid to Microsoft because the software giant viewed IBM as a competitive threat.
Norris, who was deposed in a courtroom here by Microsoft attorney Richard Pepperman, said that in 1995 IBM paid $40 million in royalty agreements for Windows 3.1, but in 1996 it paid $220 million in royalty agreements for Windows 95. Norris is a rebuttal witness in the trial, which has been on a break for several months and is slated to resume June 1.
