US judiciary criticizes Microsoft
According to two US attorneys-at-law, the software giant Microsoft is trying to extend its monopoly to the Internet, supported by the imminent appearance of Windows XP.
For example, a statement yesterday Thursday said: 'We have serious concerns about Microsoft's behavior over the past few months!' One of the reasons for this concern is that Microsoft wants to equip Windows XP with its own multimedia telephone standard called HailStorm. Despite the lawsuit against Netscape, Microsoft will also integrate the applications 'Windows Media Player' and 'Windows Messenger', an extension of MSN Messenger, which are in competition with other programs, into Windows XP. Before filing another lawsuit, the two attorneys at law, Tom Miller and Richard Blumenthal, want to wait for the imminent verdict on the appeal of the Microsoft break-up process.
