A virtual flood of people wrote in about the Microsoft-Intel incident with Tsk being the first in the gate, by a nose. A new report has come out that Microsoft allegedly told Intel to stay out of the Internet software business. This may come in the Sept 23 trial, but it that trial is focusing more on the browser wars, and marketing of IE. The investigators are particularly interested in a 1995 meeting between top execs from both companies, including both Grove and Gates. In it, Gates is supposed to have talked about how Intel's multimedia efforts and Internet software development were counter to what Microsoft's plan was, and made vague statements about supporting Intel rivals. Whew-now there's a way to start my day.
